OUR RECTOR PROF. DR. AHMET KARADAĞ HOLDS A PRESS CONFERENCE ON BOYSIS MOBILE APPLICATION, YOBUTV AND STUDIES ON HEMP
Yozgat Bozok University Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ made a statement regarding the BOYSİS BOZOK Mobile application, YOBUTV online video content platform and the latest studies carried out in the field of Industrial Hemp.
In his statement, Our Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ said:
“Since the beginning of the pandemic process, a serious study has been carried out on this subject within our university's UZEM (Application and Research Center of Distance Education). In this process, our university has adapted to the new system by updating the UZEM infrastructure and providing the additional structuring. In this process, we have made distance education, which is an existing platform, more qualified with the feedback we received from students and academic staff. Today our fully formed Boysis (Bozok Learning Management System) application has attracted the attention of many universities in Turkey and they contact us about this point.
"BOYSİS BOZOK mobile application provides a mobile learning experience for our students by supporting their learning independent of time and place."
The BOYSIS environment is a learning management system created for our students to fully benefit from distance education services during the Covid-19 outbreak. Thanks to its functional feature, BOYSİS has been created with an infrastructure compatible with mobile devices. Compatible with Android and iOS operating systems and integrated with BOYSİS, our BOYSİS BOZOK mobile application provides a mobile learning experience for our students by supporting their learning independent of time and place called m-learning. In our mobile application, our students can view lecture topics, participate in forum discussions, submit their homework, view their grades and perform many similar activities.
Our students told us that they wanted to receive notifications about the activities created through BOYSİS in this process. Our mobile application can transmit the activities created by our instructors in the course with a mobile application notification called "Push Notifications". Our students can make suggestions and contributions to the development of our mobile application by filling out the requests, suggestions and complaint forms in the mobile application we have implemented.
"YOBUTV will serve as the most vibrant and dynamic information sharing site of Yozgat Bozok University, as well as a platform where scientific, cultural and artistic events are broadcast live, and inform the public."
Also, in this process, we implemented YOBUTV as a result of the work carried out by UZEM to contribute to the awareness of our students and academic staff. An environment was created on YOBUTV to enable students and academic staff to learn from video content. Not only our students and lecturers, but also the people of Yozgat and everyone who uses the internet in our country will be able to benefit from YOBUTV. In addition to being the most vibrant and dynamic information sharing site of Yozgat Bozok University, YOBUTV will also serve as a platform where scientific, cultural and artistic events are broadcast live, and inform the public. Our YOBUTV video content platform, where new visual and audio contents are added every day, can be accessed at https://yobutv.bozok.edu.tr/.
I would like to thank our academic staff who contributed to the study, especially UZEM Coordinator and our Vice Rector Prof. Dr. Yücel Güney, and all our friends who took part in the project for their devoted efforts in the organization of these practices, which are a result of the studies carried out by our university with determination and bring great convenience especially for our students.
“With the specialization of our university in the field of industrial hemp, obtaining insulation material by using all the biomass of the hemp plant has become the focus of our work.
According to the findings obtained within the scope of the project carried out by Our University Faculty of Engineering and Architecture, Department of Civil Engineering Member Asst. Prof. Dr. Yuşa Şahin;
With the materials obtained from various parts of the biomass of the hemp plant (stem, fiber), nearly 20 products with different density and thermal properties were obtained. Thermal performance tests of these products were determined in METU Thermal Analysis Laboratories.
The results showed that most of these products obtained within the scope of the project have higher thermal performance compared to alternative products available in the sector.
Our research, and exemplary products on the subject and our patenting studies continue within the scope of the BAP-supported Industrial Hemp Research Projects in the Field of Specialization Focused on Regional Development.
In addition, paper was produced from hemp in the traditional way by one of our instructors in our Vocational School of Technical Sciences Traditional Handicrafts program. In order to raise awareness, the names of our elders of the state, especially our President Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, were written in calligraphic writing and prepared to be presented to them on papers produced from hemp.
I would like to thank all faculty members who work devotedly in the study groups especially our Vice Rector Prof. Dr. Güngör Yılmaz for these important studies carried out in the field of Industrial Hemp.
The studies carried out by our university both in the field of "Industrial Hemp", which is the area of specialization, and in order to increase the quality of education and training in all conditions and environments, will continue to be carried out with our mission "With Determination to Success". In this context, I hope that the BOYSİS MOBİL application, the YOBUTV video content platform and the recent works we have carried out in the field of Industrial Hemp will be beneficial.”31.12.2020 13:20 || 30 once read.
