  • 8. Output examples
  • 9. Interesting Insights: Wiki Traffic Spot the assignment due date! (and the interim check date)
  • 10. Sample student feedback
    • The interactive learning is great, putting theory into practice is always fun and easier to remember, sort of accidental learning.
    • I thought the wiki was a great exercise, the individual one especially with the links to be made to other pages ensures that you get a chance to read others work as well. In that way it helped me cover more areas and gain new knowledge. The group discussion definitely did help a lot …
  • 11. Sharing the learnings with others
    • Vodcast
    • Podcast
    • Interview
    • Personal assistance
      • Email, phone
