A Moodle discussion forum will be used for several activities in the course. This is offered as there are off-site participants, and the forum is an organised way for everyone to communicate their ideas at anytime to the class.
Over the 10 weeks of the course, there will be five fortnightly class sessions held on-site with online options. All workshop times - face-to-face and online - are on the weekly schedule which will be published in the near future. In the meantime, you may wish to view the Course Outline.
Although class sessions are optional, you are advised to attend as many sessions as possible to take advantage of the opportunity to share your experience with others. You will also be buddied with a mentor so you get the support you require.
Click for the Online meetings - these will be conducted on Elluminate. No password is needed, just enter your name.
- All sessions will be recorded.
- Dates and times for all the sessions are on the course timetable.
- Test your access well in advance of the class sessions, and you will need a headset with microphone unless this is built into your computer.
Contact the Student Service Desk for technical computing assistance, e.g., Elluminate (computer conferencing) is available from Otago Polytechnic by phone and email. Check out the website for the list of services.
