  6. 6. 4. What’s the difference between a student and teacher- dedicated lesson?A lesson can be considered as aset of screens. There are twokinds of screen sets: ‘Studentversion’ (so-called student lesson)and ‘Teacher version’ (so-calledteacher lesson). Both versionsinclude activities and multimediaassets. The student lesson isdesigned for a self-study model oflearning and thus includes moreactivities than the teacher lesson.The teacher lesson is designed fora presentational model of teaching– as a help for teachers in theirteaching practices. This is why theteacher version contains feweractivities than the student version, but at the same time each activity andmultimedia asset in the teacher version is presented on a separate page.Student lessons are ideal for use by students, either at school or at home. Theycombine theory, instructions and activities, and allow students to receive helpfulfeedback as they complete practice tests. Numerous activities also include extensionand remedial activities.
