When introducing on-demand lessons, certain criteria must be satisfied and certain procedures must be carried out. The Center for Higher Education Studies provides technical support, however, please consult the department offering the course subject regarding implementation.

On-demand Lessons

A new style of lessons is offered whereby lessons can be taken whenever and wherever you want, as many times as you like.

Criteria

Even when a classroom is not used, lessons offered at Waseda University that satisfy the following three criteria shall be deemed to possess the equivalent educational impact of a classroom lesson (face-to-face lesson) and shall be treated as the equivalent of one lesson, in accordance with the provisions of Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Public Notice No. 51 of 2001 (Lessons that universities are able to offer under the provisions of the Standards for Establishment of Universities, Article 25, Paragraph 2):

→ The responsible academic staff sets teaching materials and tasks for the students.
→ The students are given the opportunity to submit work and the responsible academic staff gives feedback on the submitted work.
→ The students are given the opportunity to exchange opinions and ask questions.

Lesson formats [full on-demand and combined use of on-demand]

The following measures are carried out in order to satisfy the criteria for on-demand lessons:
(1) On-demand lesson content is distributed to the students in the form of teaching materials, and students are set tasks in relation to the content.
(2) Students submit work in relation to the set tasks using the LMS short test or report features, and feedback is given.
(3) Discussion between students and questions to academic staff are carried out using the LMS discussion feature, etc.

In addition, the following two formats are also offered:

Full on-demand lessons
  • All lessons are given in on-demand format (no designated day or lesson period).
  • Some sessions are held in classrooms, such as guidance sessions or examinations.
Combined use of on-demand lessons
  • Classroom lessons and on-demand lessons are both used.
  • As a general rule, there is a designated day and lesson period for classroom lessons.
  • A variety of formats are used, including holding on-demand lessons at random a few times only, holding alternate classroom lessons and on-demand lessons every other week, or distributing on-demand content as revision material for classroom lessons. Waseda University is characterized by the high permeation level of on-demand lessons even among campus-based students, and by the large number of “combined on-demand lessons,” in which classroom lessons and on-demand lessons are mixed, in addition to its use of full on-demand lessons.
