How the Course Will Be Conducted?

This course will be given via ODTUClass e-learning environment where all teaching materials will be available online. Every registered student need to login ODTUClass to reach these materials. Teaching materials consist of

 

  • Notes
  • Presentations
  • Demonstrations
  • Simulations
  • Exercises
  • Reference resources

 

There are two types of sections. There are face-to-face sections where course is conducted in class, and there are online sections where students are responsible for following the course and studying themselves. For face-to-face sections, there are two class hours a week and attendance is compulsory. The students that are registered to the face-to-face sections have to attend 75% of all classes. During the classes, assistants explain general concepts and emphasize important points using interactive presentations. There are also class activities to consolidate the subjects. Not everything is taught during the class. Students are responsible for all contents included in the teaching materials, thus, they must study the presentations and other teaching materials in detail after the lectures.

 

Online students are expected to study the course materials themselves. Instead of attendance, students have to complete weekly quizzes in online sections. They are also required to do the assignments and attend to the exams in order to be successful at the course.

 

Our expectations;

  • Be interactive
  • Listen!
  • Ask questions during class
  • Use ODTUClass
  • Study on time
  • Do the exercises provided online
  • Use simulations and demonstrations
  • Follow the announcements
  • If you miss a lecture, you have to catch up on your own
