Frequently asked questions by students in the Department of International Relations
about online learning and the mitigation policy of the spread of Covid-19

There are three types of learning models conducted at the Department of International Relations, UII, including:

  1. Synchronous (same time, different place), for example: video streaming, online discussion, chatting or other forms of interaction; –
  2. Asynchronous (different time, different place), for example: uploading video, audio, PPT, lecture materials, interaction via email, or other similar forms of interaction that can be accessed and responded at any time convenient for lecturers and individual students;
  3. Combinations, for example: uploading videos or lecture materials, followed by online interactions.

The Department of International Relations, UII entrusts the implementation of online learning models to each lecturer by referring to the three online learning models mentioned above.

This means that if you find that lecturers apply different learning models, but still referring to one of the models above, then these classes are in accordance with the policy of Department of International Relations.

Assignments that have been designed in the syllabus will remain the same in online classes.

In conditions where the assignments can only be done through face-to-face meetings, they will be replaced by online assignments, with the same assessment structures listed in the syllabus.

In accordance with the official letter No. 31/Kaprodi/10/HI/III/2020, starting March 23, 2020 the Department of International Relations, UII adopts a policy which minimises the burden on students by not giving additional assignments beyond those listed in the syllabus.

In accordance with Rector’s letter, it is not recommended for students to travel to their hometown or out of town.

In this situation, everyone has the potential to be the carriers of the virus and spreading them to people or areas that have not been exposed, and vice versa, which are potentially exposed during the trip.

Each individual must take responsibility for protecting themselves and their surrounding environment.

The new Coronavirus or novel Coronavirus (nCoV) is a new type of Coronavirus that causes a disease called as COVID-19. Before known as COVID-19, the disease was known as the new Coronavirus 2019 or 2019-nCoV.

The new Coronavirus is a new virus, which is similar to the family of viruses that cause SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and a number of common influenza.

If someone is infected with the Coronavirus, there will be symptoms within 1-14 days since exposure to the virus. Common symptoms are:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Dry cough

Most people will only experience mild symptoms, but in certain cases, infection can cause pneumonia and breathing difficulty. In a small number of cases, the Coronavirus infection can be fatal. Older people (elderly) and people with health problems such as high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes may experience more serious illness.

As the symptoms are similar to the common cold, a test is needed to determine whether a person is infected with the Coronavirus. Tests are available at referral hospitals for people who experience symptoms with a doctor’s referral.

The keys to prevent the Coronavirus (COVID-19) are clean your hands with soap and running water as often as possible, avoid touching your face, stay away from people who show symptoms (fever, dry cough, fatigue), when coughing or sneezing: cover mouth and nose with elbows folded or tissue that is thrown immediately into a closed trash can.

The virus can spread directly through the coughing and breathing of infected people who are then inhaled by others.

Viruses can also spread indirectly through objects contaminated with viruses due to sparks or touches of hands contaminated with viruses. Viruses can remain on the surface of objects for several hours to several days, but disinfectant fluids can kill them.

If the hands are contaminated with sparks, the virus can spread through contact between people, so it’s important to wash your hands frequently with soap and running water and for a while, avoid shaking hands or kissing each other on the cheek.
