We highly encourage academic staff to minimize the provision of printed handouts to students. This measure will be exceptional for those programmes which have included the printing cost of handouts in the course fees (e.g. programs organized by CCE and staff internal trainings, etc.)
Academic staff may consider adopting the following alternatives to reduce photocopying materials or handouts:
- UMMoodle: UMMoodle is a web-based teaching platform where users can set up own teaching environment with a wide range of course activities including putting course handouts, assignments and quizzes. UMMoodle provides users with five interfaces namely English, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Portuguese and Japanese. For details of UMMoodle, please visit http://ummoodle.um.edu.mo. For registration and enquiries, please contact Information and Communication Technology Office (ICTO) colleagues at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Documents for circulation: Academic staff can place a copy of information/handouts at the Library Circulation Counter for students to borrow and make copies.
- Provide a copy of handouts to the class representative for making copies collectively.
Following the above-mentioned procedures, the Printing Room will take strict monitoring measures. For academic staff who make frequent printing request for large quantity of handouts and reference materials, we may request the written consent from relevant Dean / Department Head for further new requests.
