 Online classroom in the epidemic: users are surging, but its not easy for teachers to be anchors

This spring semester, many teachers did not finish their first lesson on the stage.

Offline training institutions have been suspended, and many colleges and universities have postponed the start of school. In order to prevent the spread of the epidemic to the campus, online classes and non-stop classes have become new key words.

From facing a blackboard to facing a screen, the geographical distance between teachers and students has become far. How to ensure that the interaction and communication in learning remain unchanged?

For Lengkeng middle school in HUAIJI, Zhaoqing, Guangdong Province, which recently ate crabs, students can answer multiple choice questions at the same time by keyboard, which is not only convenient for statistics, lively and interesting, but also can prevent cheating on each other. If the function of roll call is added, it will be more practical.

However, from all aspects, it is not so easy for teachers to be anchors.

The staff of Youdao intelligent cloud, an AI open platform under Netease Youdao, told the surging journalists that according to the feedback, the hardware facilities for teachers live broadcasting are generally not perfect, lacking computers, microphones, cameras and other standard online live broadcasting hardware. The greater challenge is that teachers are very unfamiliar with the use of live software, it is difficult to start, and many rounds of training are needed. This is a problem for the whole industry.

The platform recently announced to provide free distance education system to primary and secondary schools and training institutions nationwide. As of February 10, Youdao Zhiyun has received more than 2500 cooperation demands from schools and institutions across the country, covering 2 million students, among which Beijing, Xinjiang, Guangdong, Shanghai, Hunan, Yunnan, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and other places account for a large proportion.

Online class of epidemic prevention knowledge

It is reported that the system provided by Youdao Zhiyun free of charge includes the course design of video recording and broadcasting course, the recording and analysis of the whole process learning data, the intelligent homework correction system, and the analysis report of learning big data, basically covering the daily teaching needs of educational institutions.

In order to increase the immediate combat power of the distance learning system, Youdao Zhiyun has launched the second scheme. The core idea is that teachers can guarantee live classes with only one mobile phone, so as to meet the needs of basic teaching and communication with students.

The voice of school

Guangdong Zhaoqing HUAIJI Lengkeng middle school opened the MOOC online classroom system of China University on February 10. In order to experience this new tool, from teachers to students, with the support of technical personnel, we have carried out a special training in advance.

Li Jiaqiang, director of the schools academic affairs department, said that after that, teachers choose their own teaching methods. Teachers teach online, students listen to class feedback, and teachers and students interact in real time.

Li Jiaqiang told the surging journalists that to move the traditional classroom to the Internet, we need to make rational use of all resources, make proper use of various functions of the software, and the adapters can achieve the expected teaching effect. Among them, the sending and real-time statistics of the button keyboard of the multiple choice questions can effectively improve the interactive atmosphere of the classroom. Everyone can participate in it without plagiarism, and the results are intuitive, which can not be done in the traditional classroom. Of course, you can also answer questions on paper, take photos and upload them for review.

However, he also put forward a little suggestion: the chat area is equipped with voice sending function. Its better to take the initiative to select a student to answer the question, that is, roll call.

Students in Lengkeng middle school have classes at home

Li Chongbo, President of the US China Education Group, said that students can maintain a good learning state through online learning at home. Compared with face-to-face teaching, online teaching enables the best teachers in our school to give lessons to all students, which is beyond the scope of front-line teaching. After teaching, high-quality content can be kept on our education cloud as an important reference for later students to learn.

However, he also believes that the outbreak is relatively sudden, and the system, teachers and students are not ready, and there is a process of learning, adaptation and growth.

Online user surge

Jin Lei, vice president of Netease Youdao and head of Zhiyun open platform, also believes that the level of teachers determines the service quality of online education to a certain extent.

The technical difficulty of the live broadcast system is that large-scale people are online at the same time with low delay. During the current epidemic, there is a large demand for live broadcast, and the number of online people is far higher than the peak in the past. At the same time, low delay should be maintained to meet the needs of teaching interaction. Jin Lei introduced.

In this situation, ready-made online courses have become an important emergency resource.

MOOC of University of China announced the launch of emergency support action on January 29, providing free MOOC courses, teaching services and learning data support for colleges and universities affected by the epidemic, and giving priority to colleges and universities in Hubei. In addition to matching the corresponding professional courses, public courses, general courses and other curriculum resources from nearly 8000 courses, the school can also obtain free platform services of MOOC, SPOC, live broadcast and other teaching forms.

According to some data, the daily active users (daus) of MOOC in Chinese universities increased more than five times from January 27 to February 10. On February 10 alone, the peak value of dau was three times that of 2019. In the past, the daily peak of MOOC platform often appeared at the end of the year, which is the end of the semester.
