The lectures are no longer face-to-face but recorded and uploaded onto the Echo 360 site every Monday.
The assignments and weightings have changed to a qualitative assessment (25%), a poster (25%), and a major essay (50%), all geared more explciitly to the CLOs, ULOs and TSFs.
The due dates of the first two assignments have changed to permit marked work to be returned to students in a more timely fashion. (Because of the nature of the major essay the due date cannot be moved from Week 13.)
New rubrics have been created, to include weightings and TSFs, for each assessment.
A General Discussion Forum + Link and Communciate Directly with Staff Dropbox + Link have been added to the iLearn sites.
An externals' discussion forum has been revamped with moderated postings linked to the tutorial topcis.questions – the time for postings = about the same as the time internals would be attending and participating in face-to-face tutorials, s o there is no impact to students' study time.
There will be at least one special guest class presentation – currently one by Cpt Michael Ferguson, US Army, on Alexander's military legacy, is scehduled for Week 7, replacing a tutorial so that no additional study time by students will be taken up.
