A local lecturer is going viral on Twitter for calling her student who overslept and persuading them to attend class

On Thursday, August 1, Twitter user @Nuneon1 shared a video of a lecturer talking on the phone with a student who was absent.

The post has since garnered over 650,000 views and 18,500 retweets.

In the video, the lecturer can be heard encouraging her student to attend class in a motherly tone

In the video that has netizens swooning, the lecturer could be heard saying in an endearing tone, "You're 30 minutes late but there's still an hour and a half left. You live nearby, right? It's okay even if you get only 5 minutes of knowledge."

"But don't rush and be careful on the motorcycle," she adds, before handing the phone over to another student.

The lecturer, who has since been identified as Puan Saadah of Politeknik Seberang Perai's Mechanical Department, is being praised by netizens for her motherly demeanour

One netizen complimented her by saying, "Her children are so lucky to have a mother who is kind, considerate, and loving like her. You should be grateful for having her as your lecturer. Respect."

Another netizen praised, "This is what we call an educator!"

The video also had other netizens looking back at experiences with their lecturers who did not share Puan Saadah’s understanding attitude

One user explained that he quit his course because his lecturer banned him from class after being late.

Another user says, "This lecturer is so nice, she even asked them to be careful on the motorbike. My lecturer used to say, 'If you’re not here in 5 minutes, I'm dropping your subject.'"

"I was just 15 minutes late. The night before, I had to use an inhaler because I was out of breath. The next morning, the lecturer said this. I quit," the user explains.
