This paper focuses on the application of the Student-Centred Learning method in three architecture courses conducted in 2021 with online learning. As Covid 19 pandemic hit, online learning became compulsory and all stakeholders have
to adjust to the situation. The main difficulties with online learning are that the students become less active, and more difficult to control the quality of learning. Another difficulty such as the lack of internet access in remote areas also present. To deal with those problems, we use synchronized learning through Video Conferenceing Software (VCS) – with video off- to encourage interactions. The Student-Centred Learning (SCL) method was used to activate the students so that the lecturers can control the output. We used three courses with different states of application of SCL in comparison. Out of three courses, two of them are theory-based and another is studio-based which is very different to that from the former. We used a similar method for three of them, which is the Jigsaw method. Despite the differences in the conditions of each course, students become more active in learning. The course which has full
student-centred learning has more benefits than the others in which the method was only applied partially. In the studio-based course, however, SCL brings the smallest effect, which is due to the nature of the studio-based learning
which is more hands-on on individual projects. Generally, the students are happier dan appreciative of the application of the student-centred learning method.
