Understanding AIOU Online LMS:

Allama Iqbal Open University is known for its unique Learning Management System (LMS), which is named AAGHI. This platform serves as a digital center for holding workshops, providing students with an engaging and meaningful online learning experience.

Step 1: Check out the AIOU Online Workshops Portal:

Step 2: Selecting Your Course

When you have successfully logged into the portal, navigate to the “My Courses” menu. Choose the course that you need to work on. Once you have entered the homepage of the course, you can visit the dedicated workshop for that subject.

Step 3: Join Your AIOU Online Workshop:

After you have decided which workshop you have to proceed with, join the workshop at the allocated time to be a part of it. Since the workshops are conducted on the dot with respect to time, you must be punctual yourself so you don’t miss out on any of the content of the workshop.

Step 4: Getting Used to the Virtual Classroom Interface:

When you find and click on your desired workshop link, a “Join Session” button will appear prompting you to join the AIOU Workshop. After joining the link, you will be escorted to a virtual classroom where you can see loads of different options which are discussed below.

You’ll require a stable internet connection and a device with proper audio output capabilities to enjoy the online seminar smoothly.

Listen Only Mode:

When you only need to focus on the audio content, you can select the Listen only mode and divert your energy towards the listening portion of the workshop without having to bother with the microphone.

Virtual Classroom Sections:

Your virtual classroom will show the screen having the 3 important sections as follows:

  • Participant List: This list shows all the people attending the workshop, both teachers and students.
  • Chat Box:  It helps you to put your questions forward to the lecturer of the workshop. The feature is particularly useful if you aren’t that vocal and prefer typing your queries instead of asking them directly.
  • Main Section: The main section is where the presentation takes place with the digital whiteboard to ensure the points of the workshop are covered.
