Title: FOI online
Duration: 15-20 min.
Abstract: The presentation covers the activities that Faculty of Organisation and Informatics (FOI) undertook to transform its learning and teaching into online activities. FOI Online Portal was developed as a proxy between FOI and its teachers and students and as a central place for providing support to online learning and teaching activities. Also, an online institutional survey system was developed and administered to students to assess the quality of online teaching of all courses at FOI. The summary of results is available to all teachers and students, while detailed results about every course is available to course teachers only. Such quality feedback is used to improve courses and to re-think about their design in the next semester. Also, several international projects were submitted to bridge the gap between onsite and online teaching and learning.
