Online lecture activities can be carried out using an LMS (Learning Management System) or cloud-based Video Conference. Currently, there are many types of LMS available, including Google Classroom, Edmodo, Canvas, Moodle, Absorb, Blackboard, Schoology, and others. The use of LMS in general is to carry out online assignments, take home exams and share lecture materials. Another way that lecturers do to carry out online lectures is by using Video Conference software, including G Suite (Google Hangout Meet), Zoom, Skype and others. The use of video conferencing tools allows direct interaction between lecturers and students, recording lecture activities and discussing through the group chat feature.
The following is a simple tutorial on how to use the Google Classroom LMS, as well as the Google Hangout Meet video conference as an example of online lecture media at FPIK. Google Classroom is used for class management such as assignments, sharing materials, grading (grading) and quizzes, while Google Hangout Meet can be chosen if it requires face-to-face online, video recording and live discussions. The use of both can also be done to get more optimal results. However, it should be noted that the use of video conferencing will require large data consumption.
