When course are operated onto the online platform, courses are divided into sections. These contain various activities
that you should aim to complete in e.g., a week, each one built from a
sequence of parts. Each section and part is given a
descriptive title, associated to topic that is proposed.
Course resources and interaction
Resources (e.g., a video, a page) or activity (e.g., a discussion forum, a quiz) are proposed in the sections and parts, so you always know what’s expected. You can navigate beetween them forward and backwards, to see what’s coming up, or catch up from the beginning if you’re late starting.
Every so often, you’ll come across a discussion step, where you’ll be given a topic to talk over with fellow learners. Talking about ideas is a really great way to learn and consolidate information, so give it a go, even if you find it daunting!The section may include one or more discussion forum(s) where to exchange about the learn topics with each other and educators will offer guidance and answer questions. You will be given a topic to talk over with fellow learners.
There is a switch at the end of each step that is automatically set for certain resources or activity or allows you to mark it as
complete. This updates your activity list.
Depending on the learning scenario situation, you may or may not have to have the switch marked as complete to move on the next resource or section. For example, it may be not required to read a text before doing the final quiz but it need to achieve the quiz with success to go to the next section.
Course blockOn top right of the course pages, the "Course Block" button allow you to access various tools such as:
- A centralized access to the course forums (a list of the various forums proposed in the course)
- The completion progress showing each course activity and if you did it or even you succeed or not
Many sections will include a quiz, a moment to pause and check how well you’ve understood the key points from the previous video or article before moving on. The quizzes are not scored, you get an unlimited number of tries at each question and we may give you feedback and hints on each go.
work in much the same way as quizzes but tests are scored and may be limited to few tries (depending on the course). These count towards your overall mark and are
designed to test your knowledge.
