Teaching and learning any courses online used to be considered ineffective in most educational institutions in Vietnam. However, during negative impacts of COVID-19 on education, teaching, and learning online should be an effective alternative solution. This study aims at the benefits and challenges of teaching and learning online via the course Introduction to Linguistics for English-majored students at Ho Chi Minh City University of Food Industry (HUFI). Both qualitative and quantitative research methods are applied in this study. Data collected shows that teaching and learning online has its own strengths; nevertheless, to maximize its benefits, positive cooperation between lecturers and students should be a need. Furthermore, lecturers should perform the virtual classroom management roles positively via appropriate online tasks and assignments in order to help students avoid boredom in gaining knowledge and skills. The study also draws out some suggestions aiming to help maximize the benefits that teaching and learning online may have.

Background: Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, teaching methods to clinical clerkship students (CCS) at our institution was switched mainly to online method. The purpose of this study was to determine the cognitive changes of online enrichment of CCS at the Department of Psychiatry, Faculty of Medicine, Udayana University during the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods: This is a descriptive, observational study. We compared two sets of students: class of 2016 (Group N) and class of 2015 (Group F). Students in group N (N=99) experienced online enrichment in psychiatry during the first week of their enrollment, while those in group F (N=63) had offline enrichment in the same topic. They answered similar pretest and posttest and we collected and analyzed the results. We used Fisher’s exact test to calculate the p value. Results: The pretest results were indifferent in both groups, 42 vs. 57 in Group N and 27 vs. 36 in Group F (p=0.542). The posttest shows a marked improvement in terms of CCS managed to obtain the passing grade, 97 vs. 2 in Group N and 55 vs. 8 in Group F (p=0.008). Conclusion: CCS who underwent online enrichment had a higher percentage of passing the test compared to those who underwent offline enrichment.

The purpose of this study was to determine the comparison of student learning outcomes after carrying out Physics learning activities using e-learning during COVID-19 pandemic. This type of research is descriptive qualitative with a comparative method. The sampling technique was simple random sampling with three public senior high schools in Palembang, as many as 360 eleventh grade natural science students in two classes of the first semester in the academic year 2019/2020 and 2020/2021. The instruments used are interview guides and documentation studies. Analytical techniques using a review of the study documentation assessment of each basic competence of Physics in the first semester of eleventh grade natural science and interviews with same Physics teacher in different academic years. From the results of documentation studies in three public senior high schools equally have significant differences in minimum competency standards for Physics material of elasticity from different academic year, also the results of interviews with the teacher this result happened because many students did not understand and had problems working on the assignment, besides that there were more obstacles in online learning compared to offline learning.

COVID-19 is very dynamic in nature, and it is varying drastically with time, and this requires continuous monitoring of the situation for better resource management during the pandemic such as medical facilities and daily necessities. The situation needs to be evaluated on a regular interval by all the stakeholders such as all the government officials for making strategic decisions such as lockdown or lifting lockdown in a phase-wise manner. In order to manage pandemics such as COVID-19, the administration needs to know statistical information, trends, forecasting, and overall aggregated real-time information, and this can be achieved through a well-designed dashboard. A dashboard is used for efficient monitoring of continuously evolving situations, and it provides an overall picture in addition to historical information. This chapter proposes a real-time dashboard design for COVID-19, and it will provide insight about different elements such as design and application of the dashboard in pandemic management.
