Student-centred learning is at the heart of all activities in this course. Most class-contact hours take place in computer labs (programming and hardware/networking labs). Other classes include tutorials and lectures. Online learning is of huge importance, with most learning resources being hosted on Moodle (a content-management system). Peer-learning, groupwork and discussion are of vital importance in helping our students to communicate effectively, both in speech and in writing.
