    Module 3
    ICT Course Project


    Module 3 can only be taken after you successfully complete Module 1 and Module 2 (you can take Modules 1 and 2 in any order, but you must complete both before you take Module 3). Module 3 - the ICT Course Project - consists of planning, implementing, and then reflecting on a technology-enhanced lesson (or lessons) that you carry out with your own students.

    You will need to draw on the content and ideas covered in Modules 1 and 2 for this. You’re expected to spend about 3 to 4 hours per week on your coursework for Module 3, and you will also attend two ‘real time’ videoconferencing sessions with your tutor and course colleagues to help you plan and implement your ICT project effectively.


    • Overall, I absolutely loved this course. I think this is probably just the right course for anyone who has never done a course like this, though what was amazing was that people who were extremely knowledgeable about CMC were contributing and enjoying it as well. (...) It has been a great experience, and if you never changed anything in this course would still be great. Many many thanks.
      Dr. Amos Paran
      Institute of Education, London, UK
    • The course was very professionally managed and it was nice to see how this week’s tasks all miraculously appeared each week! (…) Keep up the great work and I can’t think of two people who could do a better job at informing and helping ELT professionals to learn more about the advantages of e-learning.
      George Pickering
      Freelance Trainer and Coach, UK
    • Perfect, IMHO. Not too much (interaction with tutors), but enough to keep things moving. Great work by the tutors in leading by example in the chat. (…) This was a real eye opener to the world of virtual learning. I feel much better equipped now to begin my own work as an online tutor. Thanks a lot Nicky and Gavin!
