Online Chinese Teaching to the Full Fledge


"Guys, the class is over for today. Please remember to write your homework. See you all next time!" Close the virtual meeting room and log out of Zoom, as is the official completion of CIB’s online Chinese classes of the day. The next step is to give students new instructions about their homework in UMB teaching system and to send out feedback and comments on their  previous assignments.

This way of working has been the daily routine at CIB since Slovakia announced in late March that all universities would continue to suspend classes until otherwise notified. The questions and user experiences of the online tool are also shared between teacher and student so that problems will be found in time and get solved. The past few weeks has witnessed the growing interests of the students towards online teaching.

In April, as the COVID-19 continues to spread relentlessly in Europe, CIB at UMB, like other Confucius Institutes overseas, moves on to improve the online teaching in accordance with the local conditions. Although the pandemic is still raging, CIB online classroom maintains the vitality just as before. While classes are suspended, students should continue studying.

Though new problems arise with the new situation, CIB at UMB will keep on exploring and improving online teaching with the new platform and the new instructive approaches. And we’ll also make good preparation in advance so as to complete successfully the final exam of this semester.
