In addition to telephone and email, we provide tutorial support via online tools. These include a "live" tutorial via a chat tool approximately monthly, and threaded discussions for more complicated and immediate questions. We particularly encourage students to engage in discussions around the core subject of each module, as appropriate. This can be via the threaded discussion or non-timetabled live chat sessions.
We can only provide a "screen shot" here indicating typical discussion threads.
Online chat tutorials
Module tutors meet students in on-line classrooms about once per month. Students can ask questions about the module materials, discuss students' presentations etc.
