Method of Education Delivery
To support the system of online learning, the courses apply a learning method which is student centered learning. In this method, students will be encouraged to be active during the learning. Students should always complete the task, discuss with lecturer, tutors and other students. Activeness of students in a discussion forum or when face to face with the lecturer or tutor is very useful to improve the understanding and ability of the students regarding the knowledge and skills learned. Learning students are directed to learning to do and learning to be, not merely learning to know.
The implementation of online learning education is using the semester credit system. Learning activities consisted of online sessions and tutorial sessions. Online sessions are conducted through Learning Management Systems (LMS), where the students and the facilitator can asynchronously interact via discussion forum. All of learning materials, called online resources (i.e. lecture notes, presentation, video, assignments, quizzes), are stored in LMS so the students can access, download, and do the self-learning. In this session, the students should also complete the assignment tasks and join the quiz, which are distributed in LMS. Meanwhile, tutorial sessions are conducting to facilitate the synchronously meeting between students and tutor. It can be brought by face-to-face, either onsite or video conference meeting.
To support teaching and learning strategy, Binus Online Learning provides Binus University Learning Community (BULC) in Palembang, Bekasi, Semarang and Malang. The teaching and learning strategy in online learning system is in the form of lectures, assignments (individual and group assignments), discussions, and tutorials. Then there are some subjects who also have a teaching and learning strategy in the form of presentation and laboratory.
The online learning system is focusing on learning guidance (tutorials, chat via forums, etc.) as well as independent learning. Information technology tools used optimally to allow intensive interaction between faculty and students. Lecturers and students get internet account. Students can view comprehensive information about schedules, rules, course materials, score, discuss and registering a study plan on their LMS. Electronic facilities available are adequate and support all the activities of the students in the learning process.
