Probing the boundary of my comfort zone: A novice's experience of using WebEx for online tutorial
Technological innovations have equipped us with an increasing array of tools to conduct lessons. However, most of us have a fair amount of reservation when it comes to adopting such tools in our teaching, for various reasons. These include having to deal with the uncertainties that a lesson may go awry because of technical difficulties one experiences during class, having to adjust our teaching approach because of the different medium; and last but not least, the additional time and effort required for learning the tool, for adapting lessons to suit the use of the tool, and for carrying out additional coordination. In this presentation, I hope to share with you my first experience of using WebEx for my online tutorial during the faculty e-learning week, by highlighting on some of the above mentioned challenges. I will also report the reaction and feedback from students after the experience.
