Case Study

Delivering a Fully Online Biology Course at the Singapore University of Technology and Design

Since March 2020, when Home Based Learning (HBL) was announced in Singapore for schools, all courses at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), except for the Graduate Capstone Projects, were delivered fully online. With multiple online learning technologies already available at SUTD, lecturers had to swiftly decide on their choice of platform, delivery mode and types of assessment for their courses. This was followed by receiving various trainings to prepare them for fully online teaching. Students were also provided with the necessary assistance by the university and being such digital natives, they quickly adapted to remote learning.
