Curriculum & Exam
1.All classes will be held online from Sept. 13 to Sept. 26.
2.To reduce the risk of cluster infections, we will open some classrooms for resident students to watch online learning materials. All students who enter these classrooms for online learning should follow the COVID-19 prevention guidelines. The information about the abovementioned classrooms will be announced on the Office of Academic Affairs’s website.
3.Courses that can adhere to the following guidelines can be held in-person after Sept. 27:
(A)According to the CECC’s (Central Epidemic Command Center) regulations in response to COVID 19, the maximum number of people allowed in one classroom is 80 Wearing masks is mandatory at all times and no food or drink is allowed. People should maintain social distance (1.5m), take and register their body temperatures before entering classrooms, and take checkerboard seating as indicated on the seat. Please keep windows wide open during class time to improve indoor air circulation in the classroom. When taking lab or internship courses, student grouping should be fixed throughout the semester. All instruments and accessories used in the course should be sterilized regularly.
(B)If your in-person classes are not able to follow the above regulations regarding the maximum number of people, or there is no extra classroom to distribute students, we suggest our faculty turn to “hybrid classes” or “on-line classes”.
(C)All in-person classes should still provide online options (synchronous or asynchronous) for foreign students, state financed off-shore island students, students under self-quarantine, or other personal considerations, etc.
(D)Teachers and students of in-person classes should login to the “NYCU Electronic Health Management System (EHMS)” (https://ehms.nycu.edu.tw) once a day and register “the assessment of health”. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please take your course online and follow the instructions to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
(E)It is suggested that one in-person class student be randomly selected every week to do the COVID-19 Rapid Testing on campus (please contact the Health and Medical Section for COVID-19 Rapid Testing information) . We encourage all students to do the COVID-19 Rapid Testing and log into EHMS.
4.The classroom should be sanitized and cleaned under the epidemic prevention regulations, and improve air circulation. It is suggested that at least one door and one window be open in all classrooms to provide cross ventilation, the windows should be open approximately 15 cm. If indoor air quality is poor, it is suggested to utilize ceiling fans or portable fans. Classes should not be held in classrooms that have only one door.
