How to study

The Internet-based training activities take place in a Web-based macro-area which is called “Didactic Cyberspace,” in the section devoted to the Master’s Course in Strategies and Techniques of Project Management. In the Didactic Cyberspace, the training and learning process takes place and accesses are diversified through customized login and password depending on the role played by the different actors of the training process: Professors, Tutors, and Students. These three categories of users can access the same information regarding each subject. More specifically, the Professor and Tutor can modify or replace training materials and add new ones for the whole course duration, whereas the student can dispose of an area of his own where he can include data, information, and personal notes. The student can access to:

  • The Appointed Teaching Professor’s Page;
  • The Tutor’s Page.

On these pages there is the Learning Environments where is possible to access:

  • Training Materials which represent the course contents: digitized video lessons including bookmarks allowing for hypertextual and multimedia linking to books, selected bibliographical references, texts of the exercises, lists of selected websites. The system of dynamic bookmarks gives the Internet-based video lessons a hypertextual character allowing different levels of navigation: from one lesson to the other one, among subjects of a single lesson, between the materials referring to the same subject.
  • Distance Tutoring. The students enrolled in the Master’s course will be assisted in every step of their study path by Telematic Professors-Tutors. The Telematic Professor-Tutor represents a guide as well as a constant presence along the Learning Process. The distance Tutoring activities may be carried out in two ways:
  1. in a synchronic manner, by using chats, video chats, video, and audio-conferencing, implemented in the Didactic Cyberspace, but also the three-dimensional classroom created on the UTIU Island of knowledge on Second Life.
  2. in a diachronic manner, through tools such as e-mail and discussion forums on the Internet. The discussion forums, related to the topics of a given teaching subject, enabling to enlarge dialogue and trigger a collaborative learning and give the opportunity for autonomous thinking on the issue being discussed and on the study activities carried on.
