Assessment methods
Students will prepare a semester project (70% of the total assessment), the focus of which will be the design of goals and learning outcomes of an online course (and individual parts of the course), definition of the target group, design and creation of a comprehensive set of e-learning activities (a lesson) on a selected topic, where the lesson will include an introductory motivational activity, a study text, at least one multimedia component, a test, a discussion assignment, a task assignment and other optional activities. All of the above is to be carried out in accordance with didactic principles of the preparation of an online course, with regard to copyright and in the context of current trends in online education. The project will also include user comments on the lesson, their evaluation and a proposal for modifications, if necessary. The course will be completed with an oral presentation of the results of these projects (20%) and a final report (10%). It will be mandatory to achieve at least 50% of the assessment for each of these components; therefore, it will not be possible to omit any of these components altogether. To successfully complete the course, it is necessary to obtain at least 70% of the total evaluation.
