The course was going very well but as you all know due the pandemic situation we had to switch to online classes. Yet it did not affect much on the learning process as we had the access to the class recordings, Whenever I faced any problems regarding online classes, I went through the recording. Apart from that everything is briefly given on the website including course materials and FAQ.

I also used to browse the difficult topics and gather a clear idea and better knowledge. Being in this situation try to use your internet to the fullest so that you don’t stay clueless about any area. The same goes for other courses as well, try to remain positive and motivated so that you can keep your focus on studies.

If you still face any confusion, you can take help from the Facebook group “AYN Support v2” and also you may contact the class monitor.

How I got a good grade: 

Hello everyone,

Take my cordial greetings. I hope everyone is keeping safe during this critical situation at their respective places. I will try to make sure my words remain relevant to your journey throughout the semester as well as the time following the pandemic and online classes. I, Abdullah Al Yusuf have completed my course E-Business (MIS207) under our faculty, Mr. Adeyl khan, this Spring’20. I also completed the prerequisite MIS107 under Sir as well with an A. But I think it’s better fitting that I write now, after being done with both the courses under the most supportive and coolest faculty I ever came across at North South University.

Rather than going on with generic and tedious advices, I would like to share my experience with the course, which might help you adjust and get on going with the course. I believe, good grade is important. However, it comes along with hard work and sheer will. And for that, it’s important to get acquainted with the course materials and directions from our faculty.

Firstly, do not worry about the online classes and assessments at all. The faculty has created an in-depth guideline for the entire semester and how the whole semester will be conducted. Make sure you are clear about the policies.

Secondly, make sure you are prepared before the exams/assessments since the exams might take place online. Also there will be an Oral test according to University’s decision. Just follow the "Course Website"  www.adeyl.com (for Sample Questions and other resources) and make sure you have all the papers solved before the exams to get your ideas about the exams cleared.

Thirdly, if you have any queries or confusions regarding anything, let the faculty know and he will give you a solution for sure. However, you should stay connected with the Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/adeyl.iteach/. We the moderators and students from previous semesters will be responding to your queries of any sort, so that you don’t have to face any issues.

The above instructions are applicable for both online and offline classes. However, since the semester will be conducted online, there are a few things that helped me gain an advantage and I believe it will be the same for you.

Exams/Assessment: Before you start panicking, let me assure you that the exams will be a piece of cake if you just ensure you study regularly and note down everything the faculty teaches in class. Also as mentioned above, go through the sample questions from the Course Website. Get reference from the book and Internet for brushing up your ideas regarding the contents of the course.

Research: It is evident that now you can work on your research skills more than ever and it is highly recommended that you take the advantage of the internet for your projects and other online assessments. It goes without saying, it has made the assessments even easier and will help you in the near future. I achieved full grades on my Mid 2, Finals and class highest on Project only through the help from Internet. I am eager to help anyone who wants to sharpen their research skills. These are the skills that come handy in situations like this and will benefit you in the coming days.

Attendance & Participation: Dont be late in a class. This disrupts the flow of the class. And you might miss out on insights and valuable lecture sections. Be there on time and stay till the class ends. Ensure full attendance and you can avail a special bonus mentioned below. Also participate in class and make share your ideas in the class that might help your course mates and the instructor.

Maintain the Online Class etiquettes. Use the “Comment Section/Box” on Google meet for your queries and questions. And follow the instructions from the faculty and try to help your course mates with any sort of material or ideas that will create a harmonious class environment.

Hacks and Tricks that make a huge difference:

The bonuses: Like everyone has already mentioned, avail every bonus from the course. You will get plenty of opportunities from Labs, Mid 1 and Mid 2. Which will be directly added to your adjusted grades for Mid-1 and Mid-2. And do not miss out on full attendance, because it enables you to avail a solid 3 marks bonus to your finals which will boost your grade by a minimum of 1 grade.

Labs and IOAs: Make sure your Labs are professional and well-articulated. You will get a full marks if you follow the instructions on Labs classes. And be very serious about IOA (online quiz). It is very importance since it will carry a heavy weight towards your final grade. Plus, the IOAs are very easy to score since it comprehends all research and course materials.

Motivation and Drive: It goes without saying that the times are not as easy now. Staying at home can cause disruption in your flow of study and course. Please, do not give up yet. Rather try different things that will help you get going. I tried to figure out my hobbies and started doing everything to keep myself busy and focused on my courses. It is important because it won’t let the situation take over you. And I urge you read books or short articles that might help you entertain yourself, broaden your horizon of knowledge and also help you stay connected to your course. You might fancy reading articles related to E Business from Harvard Business Reviews and such other writes up to sharpen your ideas about the course. I can provide you with such items if you are eager to learn and keep yourself all together.

Apart from those, I am a sophomore at North South University and will be eager to help the freshmen with any sort of guidance for the both MIS107 & MIS207 and beyond. Feel free to knock me anytime with any sort of query on my Facebook https://www.facebook.com/jayedh.yusuf. You can connect with me via LinkedIn as well https://www.linkedin.com/in/abdullahalyusuf/.

I pray for your prosperous life and bright future. All the very best for the wonderful semester.

Hello everyone,

This is Nusrat Naila Nokshi. I have done the course MIS207 (EBusiness) with one of the best faculties of Department of Management, Mr. Adeyl Khan  during the semester Spring 2020. This has been an extraordinary and comparatively tough semester for all of us and I must say I am very lucky for being able to complete the course MIS207 and obtain an A- under the earnest guidance of the faculty.

The semester has been quite hectic for starting with conventional on campus classes and shifting to online classes midst the semester due to COVID-19 pandemic. But whether it is in on campus or online academic process, I would say the key constant for attaining good grades is consistency and regulation. The course might seem tough and confusing at first, but attending classes regularly and concentrating in class instructions will eventually clear all the doubts and pave the way to success. Here are some suggestions from me that might help to obtain desired grades-

Bonus Tasks: Gripping the opportunities to obtain bonus marks are more important than you may think. Utilizing every chance to get bonus marks eventually lead to increase total percentage of obtained marks and thus increase the chances of ending up with a good grade.

Lab Classes: Labs are important parts of MIS courses and contain significant percentage of marks. Sincere Attendance and paying full concentration during lab classes are only ways to achieve good marks in labs. Otherwise practical tasks and implementation of theories cannot be learnt and accomplished.

Regularity and Class Participation: Staying present and active both in online and offline in classes is extremely important. The taught topics cannot be clearly understood without attending and concentrating in class. Also participating in class discussions, responding to class questions, following examples mentioned in class helped me to understand assigned topics and tasks better. Moreover, clearing any relevant and topic oriented doubt is easiest through active participation in class discussions.

Communication: Communicating and reaching for assistance for any course related confusions are really helpful. The faculty is extremely cooperative in such cases, we reached for suggestion and clearing confusion both during office hours and through mails, and got responses. The class representatives have been the most cooperative and supportive towards us too.

Consistency: Consistency in study is very very important. Procrastinating and pilling tasks, assignments and topics to complete later brings no good. Starting working on tasks right before deadline increases stress and decreases the quality of the task, whether it is assignment or exam. I maintained preparing and following a routine for completing daily study and tasks for MIS as well as for other courses. That really helped me to keep the balance and to never miss the deadlines.

Course Website: Every information and document needed for proceeding with the course are provided in the course website. Course related information and updates are organized and easy to find in the website. You must not forget to check the course website for updates, notices and other necessary elements regularly. When in need of anything related to the course, search it in the website first, take a glance in the FAQ section every now and then.

Group Assignments: Group works contain a significant portion of total marks, so paying attention to this is must. Try to accomplish optional ones as well for obtaining bonus thus better grades. In any issue regarding GA structure and topics, I contacted the faculty for help during office hours and the faculty explained and omitted confusion kindly. That helped me a lot so I’ll suggest to try the same for other students too.

Sample Questions: Sufficient sample questions can be easily found in the course website. Solving these samples helps to understand question pattern, increases practice and helps gaining bonus marks. I was benefited by solving sample questions, so will suggest that too.

At the end, what matters the most is relishing the course and the topics taught in this course. Keeping the spirit up, mind open for learning and concentration sharp are the keys of cherishment. Finally, I hope this course and my suggestions will help to evolve you for better.

Hello everyone,

I'm Rubiyth Beente Ashraf. I've done the course MIS 207 with Adeyl Khan in the Spring 2020. It's gonna be different for you as It's online based course. Don't worry too much as your class monitors at the Facebook group (AYN Support V2) and the fauclty will always be there to help you. Attentiveness and concentration during class is the key to success.

Make sure you are attentive and try to grab all the bonuses. Do not skip any class. Try to concrete during class as much as you can and try to answer all of his questions . Do not take quizzes easily as they can make a big difference. Study the slides and the book carefully. For MCQ make sure you take help from the book first and then try to solve the IOA'S. Do solve all the IOA'S as they helps in midtermsl. 

For mid you have to study the slides accordingly solve the previous semester questions as well, you can find the questions in the course website.

Now, Let's talk about the most difficult part- lab. Maybe you can find it easy but for me It wasn’t. Yet don't panic It's not that hard just try to concentrate in the lab class- if you miss something you can always see the video available from the course website.

Now about the group project, make sure you choose your group carefully and do your best, finish it on time and you're good to go.

About the assignments all I can say is do it on time, don't copy it from anywhere otherwise you know about the consequences. Try to take help from the book and if you don't understand anything ask your faculty to help you- email him and he will respond. 

I missed A because of my silly mistakes but I hope you will get an A. Just work hard and put your 100%. If you don't understand, call/email your faculty, ask your CR or you can always post it on the facebook group (AYN Support V2) group.

Or if you need any kind of information or help mail me "rubiythbeenteashraf500@gmail.com".

Good luck for your semester, don't panic You'll do amazing. Best wishes.

Hello,

I’m Syeda Maliha Azim and I completed MIS207 under the guidance of Mr. Adeyl Khan in the Spring of 2020. While doing this course, mid-semester we were hit with a global pandemic and as we are not familiar with these new circumstances, it is natural to face some hurdles while trying to adapt. Here are some things that helped me manage my studies and online classes during the global crisis; along with some tips on how to get a good grade in this course:

This pandemic is an unusual situation for us to be in and it is causing stress and anxiety among many students; so it is important to try to stay as level headed as possible for our own mental health. I did so by taking occasional breaks from everything (avoiding news and studies) for a couple hours for peace of mind. Maintaining a proper routine for studies and a good sleep schedule is tremendously helpful too; it also takes down course load when you are up-to-date on your deadlines.

As for the course MIS207, the faculty will give ample opportunities for a student to get a good grade through many bonuses. Try to get as many as you can because it helps boost your grade and keep you ahead of other students. Attend all the classes (there’s a bonus for it too). In case you miss a class, you can find the recorded class on the course website. To do well in Midterms and Final, going through slides and practicing the questions from previous semesters will be very helpful. Not all IOAs are mandatory, but do all of them as you will find similar MCQs in the exams. Keep an eye out on the course website for any updates or announcements.

These are the things I did in the course which helped me get my desired grade. I hope this will be helpful for you too, and you end the semester with the good grade you worked hard for. If you feel you need any further help, join the Facebook group ‘AYN Support v2’.
