The training cum workshop was held on May 15, 2011 from 2.30pm to 5.30pm. It was facilitated by OUM Perak's director, Dr Richard Ng. 83 tutors have turned up for the training where the main area covered was on how to coach and guide students to prepare for assignment. Also present was AP Dr. Safiah Yusof, the Head of E-learning OUM.

Brainstorming session were held to identify the characteristics of a good assignment

The training session was important as assignment carries 30% of the total assessment and thus tutors need to be equipped with the necessary information to help their students.

The tutors were divided into eight groups. They were given two sets of assignment and were told to brainstorm to analyze and grade the assignments. At the end of the session, the grades of the different groups were tabulated and compared.

At the end of the workshop, tutors have better understanding the features of a good assignment and have better ideas on assignments are being graded based on the rubrics used by OUM.
