Net Support Learning
Teaching Methods (additional text)
The course is open for both campus students and internet students. It will contain 10-12 campus lectures, and the main points of the lectures will also be available on internet. 3-4 internet lectures given as web conference will also be given. All students must participate in 1 practical laboratory exercise to be performed at campus.
Form(s) of Assessment
Written exam, 5 hours
Alphabetical Scale, A(best) – F (fail)
Sensureres av intern sensor (emnelærer(e)). Ekstern sensor benyttes periodisk (hvert 3. - 4. år) til retting og utarbeidelse av eksamensoppgaver, neste gang høsten 2013.
Det arrangeres egen kontinuasjonseksamen.
