Our results came out a few hours ago - but I am still quite speechless!
FINISHED!!For details, see blog.
For the record, my marks for the course were:
Which are good marks - but everything depends on that ECA ... If I can pick up 70% or more for that, then that will give me a Grade 2 pass, which I will be more than happy with.
Well, this is a decent start! :)
I've now started a blog where I'll put comments etc about this course. 'Actual' activities will still be put on the block pages. Or I think so. I don't know what I'm doing, to be honest!!
13th January 2005
Well, here we go! I received the first lot of materials this morning - and, on first glance through, I think I'm going to like this course! Included in the mailing were the first 2 coursebooks, the World Resources book (contents below), CD-ROM, etc. The course doesn't officially start until 5th February, but we can 'get sorted'. We can't do an awful lot as yet though, because the website doesn't open until 27th - and that's where the 'activities' are based - as well as discussions on the FC conference (also not opening until 27th).
I shall put all matters, concerning each block (including book contents and activities) on separate pages for each (links above).
4th November 2004
Nearly ready to go! All registered - exams behind me (but busy doing short courses).
An interesting 60-point 3rd level course, based on environmental issues on the web.
