|Timing||Initial mentor led tutorial session of 50 minutes
Then 5 days for student self-learning before the next session
|Activity Description||This activity will combine a synchronous mentor led training session followed by an asynchronous student self-learning period.
By means of a scenario, students will be guided through a hands-on experience of the icons for features and functions of the VLE
