1. There will be three face-to-face sessions: an initial, another in the middle of the semester and another at the end to present the concluded Personal Projects.
2. There will be 11 virtual scheduled sessions, divided in synchronous and asynchronous sessions.
3. The synchronous sessions will last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. The synchronous sessions will take place in a schedule to be arranged with the students.
4. The synchronous sessions will be used to discuss, in real time, a specific theme with exterior incursions and return to the conversation location.
5. The asynchronous sessions will be used for autonomous work. Some will be previously scheduled and entail research, forum dynamics, works, etc.
6. Each student will have his/her own Personal Project with own management and dynamics.
7. It is advised to participate in due time in the general activities proposed in the asynchronous sessions, as 3 days before the last lesson the publication in these spaces will be closed and only the Personal Projects space will remain open for publication.
8. Until a date to be arranged each student should suggest a theme for his/her Personal Project through the general forum My Personal Project proposal. Afterwards, there will be a discussion on the suggested theme and each student's Personal Project will be established for further development.
A. Exploring Moodle (or other e-learning platform) in several ways to design and develop an e-learning or b-learning course prototype.
B. Projects with a more research/theoretical approach (less desirable, but possible):
General issues on e-learning;
E-learning in Portuguese education;
Detailed glossary on e-learning;
Evaluation of e-learning courses;
Typical obstacles to the execution of practices in e-learning;
Videoconference and e-learning;
Certification and confidentiality in e-learning and the future;
No offline or paper-only assignments will be accepted. All can (and should) make available their organization on the Moodle platform.

2/3 attendance rate. Some absences may be compensated with virtual participations.
1. Formative continuous evaluation.
2. Two attended evaluation moments with the presentation of assignments and discussion.
3. Specific evaluation moments on line – synchronous sessions.
4. Commitment and output of the asynchronous sessions.
5. Developed personal project.
6. Small open test in the final stage.

C. (20%) Final written test.
D. (5%) Commitment throughout the semester.
The final grade of each student will be: 0,35 x A + 0,4 x B + 0,2 x C + 0,05 x D
As described by FEUP. Exceptions shall be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Without a final examination. Final mark can only be improved by re-attending the course in the following school year.
