Student blog: How GLA changed my views of Online Classes

As Covid-19 continues to be a global issue, our International Student Ambassadors share their experiences, especially about studying online. Saiham Hossain, an Ambassador from Bangladesh, gave his thoughts and his positive take on the entire situation.

“My biggest concern was whether online classes were one-sided with no real communication. However, the reality was far from it.

My university life started with Professor Takenaka's Statistics class with around 80 students (a mandatory first-year course). Seeing so many students, I gave up hope on lively communication and discussion. However, to my surprise, I was soon hung up on a dense conversation on the session's topic: "Whether income is dependent on quality-education or quality-education is dependent on income." The class was filled with voices of different views and opinions from India, Indonesia, Korea, Japan and more. That was the moment; I realized GLA's online classes were more than just one-way lecture. You have communication, opinions, debates, agreements, disagreements, and so much more.”
