In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, numerous learning institutes in Malaysia have came out with the initiative to hold its lecture sessions online.
That being said, both the educators and students have also had their fare shares of difficulties and challenges during online classes, as compared to face-to-face learning. From that, we’ve gained a few entertaining stories that managed to catch the eyes of local netizens.
A UiTM student took to TikTok recently to share an amusing story she encountered during her online class. According to the social media user, @cahhhhhhh_6, a classmate was unable to attend class due to an unusual reason. She first revealed that her lecturer came up with a list of those who were unable to join her class, and asked them to provide a solid reason.
As many are aware, students tend to give the same old excuses such as illness, emergency, and so on if they failed to attend their virtual classes. This particular male student, known as Mohd Syafiq, however surprised everyone after he informed that he was absent because his pet goat had just given birth!
Seemingly in disbelief upon receiving her student’s response, the lecturer then asked him to take a picture with the baby goats as evidence. The next morning, Syafiq shared a selfie with the newborn kids, in addition to a clip of him at the goat pen on their WhatsApp group chat.
Scrolling through the comments, a lot of social media users were greatly amused by the story shared by the UiTM student. In addition, Syafiq also earned a huge praise from netizens for his honest answer.
