After 3 weeks this is my fourth blog writing for week four and in this blog writing I am going to explain about each day experiences on week 4. As we are all about to overcome the pandemic situation to create the physical environment, we face another problem in the shape of air pollution which was very unexpected and sad for us. So, college has decided to run the classes regularly through the online classes for 1 week. Although it was bold decision and may not be as affected as physical classes but it gives continuity for student to study and gain the knowledge regarding the modules. The online classes were as usual on Google Classroom with same routine and timetable.
Due to the air pollution, we missed our workshop class of Introductory of Programming and problem solving which was so disappointing because it was the most important module for me and I hope college will rearrange the extra class for this one. Week 4 has started with Monday after getting the notification of lecture videos on Google classes at 9:00 AM to all days. I watched all the lecture videos posted by the respected teachers on YouTube. There were 3 videos of each 3 modules and in the videos, I got my opportunity to learn many new things like How to research something on search engine, how to give citation and references, The components of ALU, Control Structure on both Python and Java etc. On Tuesday there was our tutorial class of two different modules. At 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM there was the tutorial class of 1 hour and 30 minutes Fundamentals of computing by Sujan Shrestha Sir. During the class we mainly discussed on the problems regarding the lecture class and revised the lecture class on perfect manner by solving the problems and building the ALU function on Logisim and discussed on how the ALU works, what are the components of ALU what are the main functions of ALU, what kind of arithmetic and logical operation can be performed on ALU, what is control unit and many more. After the 1st class there was another class at 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM of Introductory of Programming and Problem Solving of 1 hour and 30 minutes by Deepson Shrestha Sir. The main objectives of this class were to revised the lecture class and go deeply to the basics of Control Structure. During the class we learned about Sequence control, Selection Control and Iterative Control on both python and java. On Wednesday there was our tutorial class of Academic Skills ad team-based learning at 11:00 AM to 12:00 AM of 1 hour and 30 minutes by Manish Deuja Sir. During the class we mainly discussed about How to write report and what can we do and what we can’t was the main objective and also discussed about the references and citation and how can we apply this on report. At the end of the class, we got assigned to do classwork in the form of question and answer about different things and we have to complete the task with the help of search engine and give proper reference in the form of URL as source and after completing the task we have to forward the task through Gmail provided by the teacher within a deadline which was at 11:59 PM of that day. I complete my task and forward it to the Gmail. On Thursday there was our workshop class of Academic Skills and Team Based Learning at 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM of 2 hour and 30 minutes by Manish Deuja Sir. During the class we learned about how to put references and citations of Articles, Newspaper, websites, etc. by using the font style Harvard Anglia and also got assigned to do research about different report, websites, journal and newspaper to fill up the citation and after completing the task we have to forward it to the Gmail provided by the teacher within a deadline and I submit my task within a deadline which was 11:59 PM of that day. On Friday there was our workshop class of Fundamental of Computing at 11:30 AM to 2:30 AM of 3 hours by Sujan Shrestha Sir. During the workshop class we solve the workshop task one by one and build an idea about the ALU components and we again discussed how the components of ALU works together to solve the arithmetic and logical operation with the help of Logisim and also build different methods of combinational circuit using different logic gates using Logisim. Saturday was holiday as usual so I done my workshop work and practice all the questions uploaded on Classroom. On Sunday there was our Workshop class of Introductory of computing of 3 hour straight at 7:00 AM to 10:30 AM by Deepson Shrestha Sir. Due to some technical issues we have to shift our class from one block to another where we covered both missed class as well as the workshop class of that day. During the workshop class we study and discussed more deeply about the Control Structure as well as Functions in programming languages and how they can be used to write the program in perfect manner.
Although week 4 was fully based on online class but the knowledge and the information were more important than other weeks in my opinion. The more the week passes harder the module become. So still there are many challenges coming through my door and comes without knocking. I have lot of thing to change and keep updating the things regarding the module and prepare for upcoming weeks. I hope the pollution that whole country are facing right now will terminated and hoping to get involved in physical classes on campus as soon as possible .
