Second Week With Herald College

Hello, myself Aakash Subba, this is my second time blog writing as I already submitted my 1st blog writing through Google Classroom. The first week of college experience was great as I never expected that is would be and I have learned different stuffs about different subjects and their basics. So, in this blog I mainly focus on second week of college’s learning method, style or technique or you can say about their consistency and what I learned, what I have expected, what is still the problems, what needs to be changed, what are the modules really about, and how to deeply study that module.

So, the college is always run on their time table as always. The first day of week second Monday our lecture class was uploaded on YouTube and I got my notification through Classroom at 9:00 AM. I checked all the videos about all three modules by different lecture teacher. I have learned about the Boolean Algebra and their expressions, Logic gates and their types, Literal and their type, Variables, Functions, Operators, Data Types, Expressions, more deeply studied Java, about universities, ancient education, Assessments, Socratic method of studies etc. On Tuesday, our tutorial classes were run on the basis of two modules Fundamentals of Computing and Introductory Programming and Problem Solving by two different teacher Sujan Shrestha and Deepson Shrestha. During our tutorial class which was held online I got my opportunities to re-learn or revise lecture class again. The classes were of 1 hour and 30 minutes each between 30 minutes time difference so, this much time was enough to recall and was more extra. Some problems that I was facing on logic gates and literals or you can say data type were solved by our teachers during tutorial classes but still some students still got the problems of internet I hope they could research or contact with the module leader regarding their problems. On Wednesday there was the tutorial class of 1 hour and 30 minutes on Academic skills and team-based learning. Our respected teacher Manish Deuja and Rohit Parajuli taught us about writing email and how to use it for college purposes and also learned about CC and BCC. After the class I wrote the email to the student services regarding the problems during online classes and its solution. On Thursday there was workshop class of Academic Skills and Team-based learning by Manish Deuja sir and Rohit Parajuli sir. During the class we learned about the mind mapping which was new to us. Basically, the mind mapping is like the map of the mind which lead our thought and set our mind ready to take any challenges in further future. Manish Sir clearly explain about how can we make our mind ready and what are the advantages of mind making and why are they important to us. Rohit Sir share his experiences in Herald college and why I joined Herald college and what was my dream and more. He also projects the basic mind mapping during classes and taught how to create mind mapping on diagram using computers. I also try mind mapping on Modules that we are going to learned before 1st Semester. So here is my small try.

Sample of Mind Mapping of Modules that we are learning before 1st Semester.

On Friday there was our workshop class from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm by Sujan Shrestha Sir. During that time period we again got opportunities to solve our problems regarding the Logic gate, truth table, logic circuit, De-Morgan’s law and Simplification of logic problems even more smoothly and easily. All the classmates asked the problems and teacher solved their problems one by one. Saturday was holiday and I completed all my assignments and practice little bit java and python. On Sunday that is today there was our Workshop class of Introductory of programming and problem solving by Deepson Shrestha Sir so there we learned different things about java and solved many problems regarding the question provided by the college. The class was of 3 hours from 7A:M to 10 A: M. During the time period I learned to use Blue J and practice java program and try to run some of them. We discussed about the problems and try to solve one by one. After the class I practice some of the problems as well.

This week was tougher than first week. It needs much more hard work and focus to understand the lecture, examples, questions and assignment. Also, this week was very important for me to collect the information to use for upcoming modules. I have learned many new things which was strange or unknown to me that time. I don’t know how fast this week has got passed. At the last there is good news regarding classes because college has announced that after Tuesday college will run onwards through physical classes so it will help all the students easily and more smoothly.

My New Journey With Herald College

Hello everyone me Aakash Subba and here is my first blog writing of this first week and I am damn exciting for this one. First of all, the college has been recently started from 8th of March offering online sessions after the long lockdown and this is my 1st assignment for the college as blog writing which I am writing right now. From this blog writing I am about to discuss about the modules, challenges, my expectations, what I learned from these modules, my problems regarding online sessions, what has been interesting and how to tackle my problems.

So recently our college has launched their first three modules for 1st semester which includes Fundamentals of Computing, Introductory Programming and Problem Solving and Academic Skills and Team based Learning. All the three modules seem to be quite surprising to me and regarding some modules which I am familiar with seems easy cause college has decided to teach from the basics of every modules. The college has different method of teaching which is LTW method which stands for Lecture, Tutorial, and Workshop. So basically this technique helps student to learn the same things in three different ways which is very good for every poor students as well as average and also better for talented one. I am expecting that this technique bring lot of changes of me regarding learning. As per the challenge I have to catch up the speed of teaching styles which I have never seen and experienced in my whole life and the methods seem to be unfamiliar to me as well. The module Academic Skills and Team based learning is also new to me than other subject so hoping to do my best for this one also. Talking about the other modules I get my opportunities to revise as well as redesign my ideas about Computing, Programming Languages, Python, Java, Conversions, Syntax error, Semantic error, language translator, etc. The new things I have learned from this module is Drake’s equations which was really interesting. After one week I will have the knowledge regarding the basics of module is my expectation and also do not have any doubts in any computing conversions is my top priority as well. The new things which I have learned is the concept of what is academic skills and what is team-based learning how does this works. And also about the idea of note taking, references, skills development, character build up and many small mistakes which I have done during my past regarding learning and studying. So recently I got my opportunity to introduce with programming language like python and java and also wrote some simple programs including the wolf cabbage and goat problem to tower of Hanoi in workshop. But due to this Covid-19 there is pandemic and crisis of everything which indirectly as well as directly somehow impact the education systems. So to avoid the danger of this pandemic college launched the online sessions for two weeks. It is good as well as bad because the physical environment of teaching is far better than online teaching method and I think many students already noticing the problems regarding the learning and solving problems and it is also hard for teachers to teach individually. Sometimes network seems to be the problem and it is hard to monitor all the students and also difficult to give proper attention. And this is also my first online class so it is still challenging for me as well. Just like coin has two sides online classes also have some demerits as well so the proper solution for this may be the physical classes I guess which will run after 2 weeks and I am really exciting for this. At first I find difficult to follow the direction given by teacher like creating WordPress account now I am writing this blog through WordPress all credits goes to LTW technique.

The teaching environment and the teacher seems to be friendly and I am expecting much more than that. From the 1st class I find no any kind of disturbance and distraction from anyone and all the students are good and they understand quick than me so I am hoping to catch up with my fellows classmate. Also teacher equally teach everyone not like only focusing on one student. And the best part is Time Tables of college they teach in sharp time not less not more. At the end before ending my blog all I want to say is I am experiencing something which is experiencing by only few peoples in my country which is something.
