  • 37. Student voice
    Online learning’s good. It creates flexibility which some students need to have because everyone has different lives and constraints
  • 38. Student voice
    I really enjoyed access to the lecture videos, it meant you got the same quality of explanation if you couldn't attend a lecture due to illness etc. and if you didn't understand something in a lecture you could re-experience it without needing to ask the lecturer, excellent!!
  • 39. Student voice
    I make a lot of use of the online resources, so it definitely works for me, although I do think that having lectures is also essential as long as there is extra explanation and discussion on the topic, but unfortunately some lecturers mainly read the power point slides which we could easily do on our own.
