KOTA SAMARAHAN: Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) will continue to utilise its teaching and learning platform (PdP) where students can opt for blended learning (a mixture of face-to-face and online learning).

Speaking to the reporters after an event held at Unimas here on Thursday (July 9), its vice-chancellor, Professor Datuk Dr Mohamad Kadim Suaidi said this was necessary in order to ensure the crowd in the campus was under control.

“Since the learning session in one class can only accommodate not more than 250 students, most of the subjects will be delivered through online learning. The students can attend their lectures virtually.

“They can attend the lectures while sitting in the library or in their respective residential colleges. All learning materials can also be accessed online,” he explained.

Welcoming its students to return back to the campus, Muhamad Kadim said this was vital as the university acknowledged that some,  especially those from the  rural areas, might have limited or no access to the internet.
