Speaker(s)Dr. Crusher Wong Crusher Wong, Ph.D., is the Senior Manager (e-Learning) in the Office of the Chief Information Officer at City University of Hong Kong. Before joining CityU, he received a PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Western Ontario. As a physics lecturer, Crusher introduced WebCT, the first widely adopted learning management system (LMS) for tertiary education, to the CityU community in 1998. Subsequently, he has taken the responsibility of the management and development of e-learning at the university. His latest challenge is to enable real-time teaching and assessments online.



In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers and students around the globe continue education remotely with the use of information technologies. City University of Hong Kong was one of the front runners to transition from physical classes to synchronous online teaching and learning (also known as CityU-Learning) in 8 days. While the pandemic persists, the extensive use of e-learning tools broadens from lectures and tutorials to laboratory work, practicums, and examinations. A revolution in education has been progressing with the contributions of all educators and learners. The seminar will reflect on what we did in 2020 and before to empower this education revolution, review the lessons learnt, and predict the new normal of teaching and learning after the pandemic.
