SUMMARY FOR THE INTRODUCTION FOR SKPD1023 LANGUAGE AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
Dr. Zulkifli bin Ahmad, a linguistics lecturer, was the one who began the introduction of this course to students from both the Linguistics and ELS courses. For the Linguistics students, they were assigned with a Pronunciation task, while for ELS students, were assigned with i-Read tasks by Dr. Affendi.
i-Read is an interactive learning website created by Dr. Affendi which serves to encourage the use of technology in learning. In this website, the lecturer can upload videos and articles and then post questions regarding them to the students. We could also do discussions in them and read each other replies to the tasks/questions forwarded to us.
At first, we had many problems when we were trying to log into i-Read. Some of us were unable to log in, some of us couldn’t access the discussion part. Because of these problems, it made it quite difficult to complete some of the tasks on time. But we tried to give it our all to finish them.
