Dr Norhayati Rosli is currently Associate Professor and Head of Programme (Master by Mixed Mode) at Centre for Mathematical Sciences, UMP. She taught Mathematics for Computer Graphics in Sem 2, 201920.

Course Introduction
Course name is Mathematics for Computer Graphics (BUM1133). This course is offered for computer graphics students from Faculty of Computing. The topics cover includes trigonometry, vectors, matrix, geometry and parametric representation, application of the differentiation and integrations. Desmos and Geogebra are the software used to facilitate students in understanding the graphical visualization of the topics related to trigonometry, vector, 3-dimensional coordinate system and polar coordinate. For semester II1920, 63 students enrolled in this course.

Constraint and Experience

Overall PnP Planning & Student’s Attention in a New Norm of PnP

For this course, all students request asynchronous methods, hence needs to record all lectures one week prior to the timetable schedule. It is quite challenging and needs to be well-planed, so the materials can be uploaded in KALAM based on the online schedule planning. I need to be more manageable and need to come out with the planning for weeks 6 to 14 before the online teaching and learning started. So, for this reason, the following weekly planning have been sent through WhatssApp to BUM1133 Students Group and uploaded in KALAM (pdf format & video) prior to the virtual PnP.

For the online teaching & learning planning, I have prepared the material in the form of video version. It is to ensure that I can boost the student’s momentum in this new norm of PnP. To prepare just one video with the duration of 5 – 10 minutes is the major challenge. It takes two weeks for me to complete this introduction video. The challenge is I need to learn, prepare the interactive power point slide and make it interesting to the students. Preparation and editing really takes time. The welcoming video can be watched below.
New Norm Working Hour

Another challenge is when I need to work from home with my little kid. My husband also has a duty as a frontliner during Movement Control Order (MCO). During MCO, I need to schedule my working time according to three working period which include 5.00 am – 10.00 am, 3.00 pm – 5.00 pm and 10.00 pm – 2.00 am. Recording session was scheduled at 5.00 am or 11.00 pm to ensure no ‘noise’ from my kid.  It is quite challenging when most of the students prefer to study at night due to the accessibility to the internet and no disturbance from the family members. Henceforth, my working period also need to be aligned according to the students’ needs and at the same time not scarifying my precious time with my family as well as keep my health in a good condition so no delay in my work. I have experienced no voice detected while recording PnP video since the software used (Screencast-O-Matic) is a free licence and just realized this problem after uploading the video in YouTube channel. It is for two weeks lecture and due to that I bought yearly subscription licence of the Screencast-O-Matic. Assessment related to this course was conducted using KALAM as well as WhatsApp group.

Technology Used

PnP videos were recorded using Screencast-O-Matic or whiteboard and digital camera depending on the topics of the lecture. Screencast-O-Matic software also has been used to record step by step of the 3-dimensional system drawing and polar curve using online software of geogebra and desmos. The handwriting part to show the theory and step by step of the example has been written on the laptop by using Veikk pen and tablet.   Video editing is done by using Adobe Premier Pro 2020 and TV is used for clear visualization (display) of the edited video. PnP video was uploaded in YouTube channel and all the materials were uploaded in KALAM according to the following weekly arrangement (example):

The related materials also have been posted to student’s WhatsApp group. Technology used are summarised in the following pictures.
The following are example of videos I have produced for online teaching & learning purposes.
