CORSO ACQUISTABILE IN MODALITÀ E-LEARNING
Ciascuno studente avrà un suo account personale per accedere alla piattaforma Blackboard (la prima al mondo utilizzata nel settore dell'istruzione online). Qui troverà un'interfaccia chiara in cui visionare tutti i contenuti didattici delle lezioni, l'elenco delle attività, il calendario. Direttamente online potrà comunicare con i docenti o con gli altri studenti del corso (tramite blog, chat, ecc.). Dal suo account potrà inoltre partecipare attivamente alle lezioni in modo SINCRONO (intervenendo e facendo domande, esattamente come se si trovasse in aula) o rivedere le lezioni videoregistrate quando più lo riterrà opportuno (alla sera, oppure durante i week-end), in modalità ASINCRONA.
