ELC launched a web service for Foundation students to help them in improving their writing skills. The web page can be accessed from SCT website www.sct.edu.om.
Training for ELC Level 3 and Level 4 Foundation lecturers was organized by Ms. Atsloom Al Maashani the writing center coordinator and presented by Mr. Junn Eric Timoteo system administrator held last October 13th - 17th, 2016 at ELC Lab 4 & 5 .The training was attended by 16 teachers in level three and 14 teachers in level 4.
Teachers can access the web page by signing in using their college user name and password.
Once teachers log in, they will see two different dashboards: One for the tutor and the other for the Writing Center coordinator/committee.
In Tutor’s dashboard, a teacher can see his schedule and can make a referral. In referral page, a teacher can find his/her group list. Once a teacher selects the name of referral student, the next page shows the details of the student selected.
Once the teacher confirms the details of the student by saving the selection, he/she should select the weaknesses of the referral student. Once the details are saved, automatically a confirmation message is sent to student as well as the teacher.
The second dashboard contains the names of referrals, making booking and the list of users and schedules. In this dashboard, a teacher will be able to book or cancel the names of referred students. Once a teacher refers a student, the name of the student appears in the dashboard and the teacher has to select the date, time and tutor for the referred student. Once a teacher successfully completes the procedure, a confirmation of booking SMS will be sent to the student and the group tutor.
The teacher can see the confirmed schedule on the dashboard.
The writing center coordinator can view the list and the schedule of referred students and mark the students present or absent for the referred session. The writing center tutors can click on the PRESENT button and after logging in he/she can add comment or feedback.
The Training was successful and soon will be implemented this semester.
