A standard short course will include the sections as below:
The Tutorial and often the Good Practice Example sections include videos filmed by our production team at Laser studios. Full tutorial scripts can be downloaded and read if you learn better in this way.
The Reading section includes some of the best, most relevant, and current content on the web. It can often include a reading text written by our industry expert.
Our industry expert has also created a presentation exploring the subject in more depth, and this is made available to you in the Presentation section.
The Activity section puts your learning to the test with various tasks. Please note, these tasks are not part of a formal assessment and are not essential.
If you want to find out more about the subject and stretch yourself, then there is lots of further reading, good practice examples, and videos in the Extended Learning section.
After working your way through the course, you should be ready for the final section: the multiple choice Quiz. If you don’t pass the quiz first time, don’t worry, you can go back over the course material and try again.
