UNIVERSITI Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) will be employing online learning for their courses when the 2019/2020 second semester commences. Its vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Mohamad Kadim Suaidi said this is in line with the Higher Education Ministry’s recommendation to move the teaching and learning process at all higher education institutions online to curb the spread of Covid-19.
“We do not allow students to return to campus except for certain reasons such as lacking Internet access to begin their studies in their hometowns, ” he said.
The semester is expected to begin on June 9 with the eLEAP system – the varsity’s portal with online lectures, study materials, and teaching and learning activities.
To date, more than 3,000 Unimas students have returned to their hometown.
Last month, the government allowed students to return to their families residing in green zones. The first movement of students, under strict supervision of the authorities, was on April 27.
