AIS E-Learning Plan Updates

Academic Year 2020/2021

Dear Respected Parent and Student,


In reference to the MoE announcement on Saturday, 15th August 2020 to reopen schools for online/remote learning during the first seven weeks of the academic year 2020-2021, this circular will update you with important information to answer your questions, concerns and queries.


E-learning Instructional Delivery


All E-learning class instructions will include the following:

  • Live classes (i.e. Synchronous) for every lesson and for all the teachers – including PE and Art – using a professional version of Zoom Video Conferencing Tool which is integrated in the Schoology Learning management system.
  • Discussion forum (via Schoology) will be specially dedicated to providing instructions/guidelines as well as responses to student questions/concerns during the live classes.
  • High-quality recorded teaching videos (i.e. Asynchronous) will be uploaded to Schoology every week to facilitate and supplement the live classes. This is to ensure that every one of our students stays connected to his/her teacher and classmates while learning from home in a flexible model.
  • Assignment instructions will be published through Schoology and the teachers can also provide additional assignments in the discussion forums, live sessions, the asynchronous recorded videos and elsewhere on Schoology.
  • If students encounter any difficulties with the above instructions, they can contact their teachers – send a message to them via MyAIS or Schoology platform (i.e., Discussion Forum) – preferably during the school timings via the Office Hours or at any time.

  • Short Quizzes
