    2. 2.  eSCART general description (history, evolution)  Types of learning activities  Types of students’ assessments  Correlation between learning activities and final score  Conclusions
    3. 3. Since 2003, ITM organises each summer the Short Course on Antiretroviral Therapy (SCART) a 3-week course, with ~40 physicians/year, who work in low resource countries

    10. 10. Grading book (formula final score) Final survey Dataset 32/38 students Students logs on Moodle
    11. 11. Correlation between learning activities and final score  Relationship between the time spent on self-assessments (in days) and the final grades  Number of self-assessments per module and relation with number of visits
    12. 12.  The time students spent on all the activities impacted on their overall performance.  Self-assessments are an important tool, but it is important to place the relevant information in the first exercises, because interest in these decreases as students progress through the exercises.  Analysis of data in a LMS helps to improve the course design and to inform the participants in advance on how much time they need to spend on the course online or offline.
