Methodology

The e-learning course provides an interactive barrier-free self-paced learning environment. In order to support this, the course uses the latest instructional methods in e-learning such as illustrative case studies and demonstrations, as well as interactive tests and practice exercises. To be as inclusive as possible the contents of each module are designed in a barrier-free manner – which explains the limited interactivity in some parts of the modules as well as the limited variety of different types of exercises used.
