2023 Annual Teaching Excellence Symposium

Humanized online class during the COVID-19 pandemic in South Korea

Junghoon Kim, Ph.D.
Visiting Professor, Cal Poly Humboldt
Associate Professor, Korea Maritime & Ocean University 

Marine Sports Lab

Pre-Class : Marine Sports Lab.


How this Course Works:

When you log in to the LMS (the login link is located at the bottom of this page), you will have access to all the course content. The weekly modules become available in the LMS every Monday. Video lectures can be watched at any time in the LMS, and some lectures may be repeated for your convenience. However, please note that active participation during the designated class period (usually one week) is required to receive attendance credit, as attendance and online class time are automatically recorded.

As you may be aware, this is a hands-on marine sports class, and it may not be possible to complete the class entirely online. For students who are interested, we will be conducting a few experiential classes during the COVID-19 pandemic in conjunction with the online classes.

I'm Junghoon Kim, a professo in the Department of Marine Sports Science. I teach the Marine Sports Lab. Course, which serves as a foundational class for first-year students in our department. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I am unable to physically come to the university at the moment. However, I have created a VR video that will allow you to familiarize yourself with the school and gain a better understanding of marine sports.

Communication Essentials

To get in touch with me, the most effective method is through email:


For general questions regarding the assignment, I recommend posting your inquiries in the "Q&A Discussion Board" in the LMS, as your classmates may have similar questions. If you have personal questions, you can utilize the 1:1 Q&A in the LMS and request a private consultation.

To enhance communication, I have created a KakaoTalk open chat room where we can share class announcements, exchange information, and ask questions. Although participation in the open chat is not mandatory, it will ensure that you don't miss any important class updates and make it convenient for you to reach out to me. Additionally, all class announcements will also be posted on the bulletin board in the LMS.
