Theoretical content will be uploaded to Canvas, and all practical applications will be delivered in class. Except in the case of extenuating circumstances, 100% attendance at all sessions is expected.
It is also expected that if students cannot meet these participation requirements, they inform the Unit Convener as soon as practical by email.
Required IT skills
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
