We currently plan to run online courses until at least June 2021. Our priority is to provide our teaching in a safe manner for staff and customers alike. Please see below for adjusted dates - our popular FP1 distance learning course is unaffected by this change.
We will update this section whenever new information is available. To stay informed you can of course always contact us and also request to join our email list.
We have now successfully completed our first set of online course. Based on this experience, we can confirm the general procedure:
You will find all lectures pre-recorded on the University online learning platform to which you will have access about a week before the course start. This platform works in all standard internet browsers. Our online courses also include live sessions, both for questions & answers as well as for tutorials. We provide a suggested timetable, where we have organised content into a suggested order, sorted by functional dependencies. This allows you to prepare in your own time, as we understand that especially during the COVID crisis, your schedules will be busy and irregular. We will also post hardcopies of our extensive lecture and lab notes to you ahead of the course.
Our labs will be pre-recorded, similar to the lectures, and we will use live sessions hosted via Microsoft Teams to go through the calculations. In some of the labs, we will watch a video together, in others there will be break-out rooms that allow you to work and discuss issues. We will also use MS Teams for general Question&Answer sessions.
We feel that this combination of recorded and live sessions is the best combination of flexibility and interactive learning.
At any time, you will be able to contact the course team by using email or the chat functionality in Microsoft Teams.
