The university’s plan to move classes online and request for survey completion

2020.04.17 | ALL, STUDENT

Dear Students,

This is an announcement from the Student Affairs Division of Tokyo University of the Arts. Since it is uncertain that regular classes can be conducted in classroom settings when the university reopens in May, a university-wide effort is underway to move classes online. You will receive a message from the President regarding this matter in the coming days.

In order to make online classes available, we need your cooperation in preparing online learning environments as well. Please visit the link below and complete the survey to let us know your network environments. Thank you in advance for your time and cooperation.

>>Please complete the survey here by 5pm, Wednesday, April 22, 2020.

For your information, the following platforms are being considered as potential tools for online classes.

1.Google Classroom
Google Classroom is a platform that allows you to manage class assignments, or boost collaboration and foster communication with others, to engage in online learning. You can use your Gmail account to log into this service, and there is no need to create a new Google account. (Non-degree students can access Google Classroom using their Geidai accounts. However, there is no email functionality associated with their accounts, so they need to go back to Google Classroom regularly and check for any assignments and announcements from their instructors by themselves.)

2.Google Hangouts Meet
For classes to be held in an online meeting format, Google Hangouts Meet will be used.
