Distance education announcement dated 26.03.2020

Dear Students,

Our University has completed the necessary efforts to offer distance education as a result of the interruption in education within the framework of the pandemic emerging globally, and in our country. A license for the Zoom platform has been obtained for all part time or full time instructors at our University. In this regard, all courses, except for preparatory English courses, are to be streamed live through Zoom from Monday, March 30th, at their regular course hours. You are not required to purchase Zoom yourselves. You may find the information on which session to join to access your courses, and additional technical details on how to use Zoom, on our web page, and the Moodle page for the relevant course. While live classes will be streamed over Zoom, Moodle will still be used for additional course material, and homework purposes.

Live courses for the preparatory English program are starting on Monday, April 6th.

For now, we aim to leave the current period behind with no disruptions or shortcomings regarding your education. In this framework, distance education and live courses are to continue until May 29th, 2020. Then, at a future date to be announced by the Higher Education Council when formal education shall continue, theoretical courses are to be reviewed, practice sessions will be held, your midterms, and your finals, will be administered; in order to conclude the semester at a convenient date. In the light of these events, it is currently indefinite whether our summer school is to open. We will be informing you in line with the date to be announced by the Higher Education Council to return formal education.

I would like to emphasize again that the Semester of Spring 2019-2020 is to proceed through computers, tablets or phones as planned, instead of proceeding inside classrooms. In this framework, I kindly request that you join the live courses, study and be prepared for the midterms that are to take place once we return to formal education.

I wish you a successful, and a healthy day. We are looking forward to meeting you soon, at our University.

Student Affairs announcement dated 25.03.2020

Dear Members, Students,

Within the scope of the coronavirus epidemic measures, the Student Affairs Directorate of our university will be provided between the dates of 25 March - 6 April 2020 via oim@atilim.edu.tr and you can contact us via this e-mail address.

Thank you for your understanding.


Distance education announcement dated 23.03.2020

Dear Students,

Our country and our world are witnessing a period quite extraordinary. First of all, I would like to wish you, your family and your friends a healthy day.

As you are aware, classroom teaching at universities is experiencing an interruption due to the corona virus pandemic. Universities are starting to offer distance education for the time being as per the resolution by the Higher Education Council. As Atılım University, we are working intensively in this matter.

In this scope, as well as mandatory and elective courses, the theoretical portions of practice courses at all levels are available to you through the Moodle system. To gain access, you will need to log into moodle.atilim.edu.tr using the e-mail address provided by our University, and your password. A considerable portion of the courses of Spring are now available on Moodle. Our efforts to make the remaining courses available are continuing. In the event of problems regarding course access, you may e-mail the Dean/ Director of the relevant department to inform them accordingly.

For the time being, practice courses will not be offered. A decision will be taken on whether these courses will be within the scope of distance education activities, or within the framework of compact education in the light of the updates. We will keep you updated.

For the time being, no exams are to be administered remotely. Your midterm and final exams are to be administered once education activities resume at the university.

Level results for the Basic English Department (Preparatory School) have been determined taking into account the first exams, homework, quizzes and attendance. Level results are to be announced on March 24th. The new levels and sections are to be determined within the next two weeks and after the necessary preparations, the fourth quarter of the preparatory English course shall begin on April 13th.

ENG122, 222 and 322, courses offered by the Department of Modern Languages, are now available on Moodle for the students taking the class from all departments. Our efforts continue to upload the ENG102, 202 and 302 courses onto Moodle. We will keep you updated.

Live courses are to be offered for some of our courses, primarily those offered by the Departments of Basic English, and Modern Languages. You may follow the updates on this matter on the Moodle page of the relevant course.

Returning students within the scope of the Erasmus program may contact their advisors to determine the classes they wish to take. They will be registered to the courses of their choice, and given access to distance education.

Our message to you is “Stay home, stay healthy.” We kindly suggest that you follow the official accounts of our university, and do not go out unless you absolutely must.

We hope that you will continue your education remotely, and with the same encouragement, for the time being. We hope to see you soon at our campus.

Best regards.

If you are already registered on Moodle, you may follow your courses by clicking your course code via the “My Courses” tab on the Moodle platform which will take you to the “DISTANCE LEARNING 2019-2020” page for your ENG course. For example, if you are taking ENG122 in the Spring of 2019-2020, you may log into Moodle, click the “My Courses” tab and reach the home page for your course titled “ENG122 Distance Learning 2019-2020”.

Your remote courses are to proceed weekly as a 1-hour video presentation, and a 1-hour live Q&A session to be prepared by the instructors from the DML. In this regard, you are expected to join the Q&A sessions of that particular week after you watch a weekly course presentation video. Online live Q&A sessions are to be conducted by the instructor assigned to your section. You may find the timetables for each section on the document accessible through Moodle. Students may only join the “LIVE Q&A SESSION” of the course and the section where they are registered.
