b. Exam monitoring: Students need to prepare cameras or smartphones and turn on the video mode or use the webcam’s authentication of the E3 system while at an online exam. Teachers or TAs monitor all students at the exams via the video mode. The students need to stay in a quiet and bright environment at the online exams, and that camera shooting angles should avoid areas with test answers.
4. Oral defense for the qualification examinations and thesis defenses may be conducted online via video conference mode. The students need to choose the examination method on the Degree Examination Grade Sheet; no additional application is required in advance. All committee members need to participate in the online oral exam simultaneously, no substitute allowed. For the oral examination documents, each college(/department/institute) can determine whether the documents be handled in e-file (electronic signature) or by direct mail (paper copies). For in-person oral exams, thesis committee members and students must wear masks and keep social distance.
5. For lab courses and practical operation courses, online streaming or offline video demonstrating the lab experiments is recommended. Regarding lab equipment without safety concerns, teachers may decide whether students can borrow the equipment and do the lab experiment at home. Students may show their experimental results online. After completion of lab experiments, all borrowed lab equipment should be sanitized after return.
