Abstract

In this paper, we discuss a methodology of converting a course to an online course without changing the outcomes of a traditional face to face (F2F) course. Sri Lanka Technological Campus (SLTC) has been offering approved engineering degree programmes since 2016. According to the requests, there is a demand for these programmes among working people. Therefore, SLTC has decided to offer the same programme as a blended programme for working people as a part-time degree. In line with the decision, only a part of the programme will be offered online. Taking this into consideration, the existing content and the different learning activities in courses are analysed in this paper. Furthermore, possibilities and difficulties were identified when converting the activities to online and some solutions to overcome them were suggested. Subsequently, a methodology was developed for converting a course to online mode. The proposed methodology can be used for converting a F2F course to an online course. Consequently, it opens another path for working people to follow an engineering degree. // Paper ID 243
