It aims at evaluating work related skills (more than theoretical knowledge). The exercise has to be realized in groups of 5. The students themselves have to select their "final exam mates" during the 4 weeks of training (to foster interchange during the training and allow the constitution of groups of people sharing the same interests/ideas/projects/work contexts). A longer time should be foreseen for the realization of the exercise (10 days). After the deadline each group should present its product to the virtual class and the tutor in the framework of a face to face session or an online interactive session. Moreover, students will be proposed to answer an evaluation questionnaire on the module and to participate in a feedback forum. Final exam: imagine to start-up a restaurant and create: a. the menu of the week, using writer; b. a communication tool (ex. flyer, brochure etc), using impress; c. the weekly cash flow, using calc. Feedback Forum: Students are invited to share their final impressions on the module and say good-bye to other students and to the tutor. Evaluation Questionnaire: Students are asked to fill in a semi-structured questionnaire evaluating the following dimensions of the received training: learning outcomes; role and career development; overall satisfaction with the module. Students and tutors The final exam counts for 50% of the final note. This 50% should be attributed on the bases of the following criteria: coherence with the learning inputs (15 points), valorization of ICT based methodologies/tools (15 points), innovativeness and creativity (10 points), quality of the presentation (10 points). The remaining 50% is attributed on the basis of participation during the training (tasks submission and forum interventions).
