This study is conducted as online studies. Studying is done independently based on the materials provided in Moodle and based on other provided materials. To complete the study the course project work needs to be returned within the given schedule and based on set requirements for the course project work. Project work and it’s guidelines is announced in Moodle at the beginning of the course. The project work is putting together several topics covered during this course.
In addition to lecture materials and self-study materials, instructional videos are provided such that they contribute to reviewing and deepening the issues covered in the lecture materials. Instructional videos can also provide guidance on how to go through the topics and also provide the information needed to do project work.
