Results Publication Delay: Spring 2020

Image
Dear Students,
At the end of each semester I publish performance reports of all the courses, including extensive detailed breakdown of each section. Those reports help the students to pinpoint their errors and also provide important feedbacks for necessary improvement.

Unfortunately, such reports of the Spring 2020 semester is not coming anytime soon. The reason is that, the "Office of the Controller of Examination" instructed us not to publish any result.

Although, I personally believe that results are integral part of the feedback system of education and without this feedback, students lost their interest.

Image
Course: BUS-3212 (Economic Development - Spring 2020)
We took vote from students, via Google Classroom, about their preferred class time during the Holy Ramadan. The poll is closed now. No more vote will be accepted. Here is the final result:
Option 3 (2:30 PM or 14.5 hours) = 5 studentsOption 1 (11:00 AM or 11.0 hours) = 3 studentsOption 2 (12:00 PM or 12.0 hours) = 1 student Decision:
(14.5 + 14.5 +14.5 +14.5 +14.5 + 11.0 + 11.0+ 11.0 + 12.0 ) / 9
= 13.056 hours = 1:00 PM

So, during the Holy Ramadan, the classes will be held at 1:00 PM typically.

Paid courses of Coursera are now free

Image
বিশ্ববিখ্যাত অনলাইন লার্নিং প্লাটফর্ম Coursera থেকে আমরা কিছু লাইসেন্স পেয়েছি, যার আওতায়, আমাদের স্টুডেন্টরা Coursera-এর পেইড কোর্সগুলো ফ্রি করতে পারবে, এবং কোর্স কমপ্লিট করলে সার্টিফিকেটও নিতে পারবে।
যদিও Coursera এর যে কোন কোর্সে ৭ দিনের জন্য ফ্রি এনরোল করা যায়, কিন্তু পুরো কোর্স কমপ্লিট করতে পেমেন্ট করতে হয়। এই পেমেন্টের পরিমাণ কোর্সের উপর ডিপেন্ড করে। কিন্তু এখন, FIU এর বিজনেস ডিপার্টমেন্ট এর স্টুডেন্টরা এইসব কোর্সগুলো ফ্রি করতে পারবে।
শর্ত হল, কোর্সে এনরোল করতে হবে July 31, 2020 এর আগেই, এবং তা অবশ্যই Sept. 30, 2020 এর মধ্যে শেষ করতে হবে। এই সময়ের মধ্যে, আমাদের একজন স্টুডেন্ট যত খুশি কোর্স কমপ্লিট করতে পারবে।
আমরা স্টুডেন্টদের জন্য প্রায় দুই হাজার কোর্স ওপেন করে দিয়েছি, যার পুরো তালিকাটা এই লিংকে পাওয়া যাবে:

এই লিংকে গিয়ে Explore বাটনে ক্লিক করে টপিকওয়াইজ কোর্সগুলো দেখা যাবে।
কিভাবে এনরোল করতে হবে? অবশ্যই BBA/MBA এর স্টুডেন্ট হতে হবে। যারা রিসেন্টলি ডিগ্রী কমপ্লিট করে ফেলেছে, তারাও পারবে।  প্রথমে https://www.coursera.org/ তে নিজের ইমেইল দিয়ে একটা একাউন্…
