Teaching and Learning Methods  Evaluation
Delivery

 Lectures in class.
 Teaching is assisted by Learning Management System.
 Teaching is assisted by the use of online forums where students can participate in order to improve their problem solving skills, as well as their understanding of the theory they are taught.
 Teaching is assisted by the use of prerecorded videos.

Use of Information and Communications Technology

 Use of Learning Management System, combined with File Sharing Platform as well as Blog Management System for distributing teaching material, submission of assignments, course announcements, gradebook keeping for all students evaluation procedures, and communicating with students.
 Use of Appointment Scheduling System for organising appointments between students and the teacher.
 Use of Survey Web Application for submitting anonymous evaluations regarding the teacher.
 Use of Wiki Engine for publishing manuals regarding the regulations applied at the exams processes, the way teaching is organized, the grading methods, as well as the use of the online tools used within the course.

Methods of evaluation:
 Weekly presentations  oral exams, combined with weekly written assignments.
 In any case, all students can participate in written exams at the end of the semester.
The aforementioned information along with all the required details are available through the course’s website. The information is explained in detail at the beginning of the semester, as well as, throughout the semester, during the lectures. Reminders are also posted at the beginning of the semester and throughout the semester, through the course’s website. Upon request, all the information is provided using email or social networks.
