  13. 13. Next steps 5We are…… looking for different scenarios for MFP virtualdefense in both synchronous and asynchronous modesin virtual learning environments for the closing phase… designing a pilot project, in order to apply themethodology contained in guides and tutorials, andvalidate their adequacy… developing the following products: 1. A Guide to tutoring and assessing aimed at MFP tutors 2. A Protocol for virtual defense of MFP which will provide students methodological guidelines to keep in mind when preparing and conducting the defense of the MFP
