The Academic Skills in Master’s Studies course is completed mainly through individual assignments and online exercises. A part of the course consists of optional content: students choose exercise entities according to their interest. This set-up creates challenges for both the student’s course experience and for the management of the course. Therefore the goal of the pilot is two-fold:
- to test different tools and activites for reaching the learning objetives through online means and to create a pleasant online exercise experiences to students in specific items connected to the overall goals and content of the course,
- to ensure a coherent course workspace in order for students to experience the course as a whole.
From a course staff perspective the goal of the pilot is to create a workspace that enables a smooth course management and management of other activites (such as academic advising) connected to the course.
Platforms and tools
A variety of Moodle activities are used and tested.
We use online exercise entities where materials and students’ own contribution is all available and collected online, online book groups (workshop tool), Quiz-activities.
