Changwon University formally launched an integrated learning management platform called “e-campus” in the first semester of 2021. E-campus is designed to manage the quality of education. This includes various teaching methods, current status, and statistical analysis of the database. E-campus was tested from December 24, 2020 to January 15, 2021 over the winter vacation. E-campus formally launched on March 2, 2021. It’s an all-in-one platform instead of e-class and online class communities which were the existing educational management systems. From the first semester of 2021, students won’t be able to use e-class and online class communities, and all college classes will be held on the e-campus. This article will explain how to use e-campus so everyone is ready for the first semester of 2021.
It is easy to take classes through the e-campus. Here are the steps: 1) Click on e-campus (integrated LMS) in the portal (waagle) or search for “Changwon University e-campus” (ecampus.changwon.ac.kr) to access it. 2) Change the language if needed. There are four available languages: English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. 3) Enter the portal (waagle) ID and password to log in. 4) When logged in, users can see the announcements and the list of the classes they are currently taking on the dashboard. Also, users can check learning activities by clicking classes that they want to take. 5) When finished the class, click the pop-up.
Students can use the “Coursemos” application to take classes on mobile platforms as well as on e-campus. Before Coursemos, there was no application available for students to take their online classes. Even if students took classes through mobile devices, it was inconvenient because attendance was not recognized. From now on, students can take classes on smartphones and tablet PCs through the mobile application. Attendance can also be taken through the application. Here’s how to use the “Coursemos” application which will be available this semester.
Coursemos is very easy to use: 1) Download the “Coursemos” application from Google Play or the App Store. 2) Enter Changwon University in the name of the school and select it. 3) Students can log in with their Waagle ID and password. Students will then be able to see the list of the classes they are currently taking. Students can also check messages, announcements, and upcoming events at the bottom of the application. The language can be changed by clicking the language setting in “view more”. The app supports Korean, English, and Japanese. However, it unfortunately does not support Chinese unlike the PC version of e-campus.
In addition to the availability of the application, the attendance recognition method and the lecture video upload method have been changed. Previously, it was necessary for students to complete not only their lectures but also their learning activities to have their attendance registered. However, on the e-campus, attendance is recognized just by taking the class. Whether learning activities will be factored into academic performance is at the professor’s discretion. Video uploads have changed from Google Drive uploads to e-campus uploads.
It is expected that students will be able to take classes more easily on e-campus instead of on e-class and online class communities from the first semester of 2021 onwards. Above all, student satisfaction levels with this change will hopefully be quite high as they can take classes through this application starting from the first semester. Changwon University created a video and is providing more information through the Creative Education Center for the new users of e-campus. Students can find the video in the e-campus announcements. Also, students can find the manual for using e-campus in the e-campus guide. For inquiries, please call the Creative Education Center at 055-213-2230.
