This is an online module. This means that all the information you need will be on the MyUnisa site.
Where do you start?
On the MyUnisa site you will find two tabs for EUP1501. One is the main site, EUP1501-Sx-xx, and the second one is your group site EUP1501-Sx-xxxT.
In the main site you will find most of the information you need for the module but you will not be able to post any assignments or post discussions on this site. Prof Goosen (the module leader) will post announcements on this site.
The group site is where you will post your answer to questions, communicate with other students and communicate with your Teaching Assistant.
Read your tutorial letter
After reading the tutorial letter you need to read all the information on the “Home” page of your group site.
The next step would be to check your “Discussions” on your group site. Here your Teaching Assistant will communicate with you and give you extra help and guidance. You can also ask your Teaching Assistant questions here.
This is your “Textbook”. The Learning Units will take you through the module step by step.
What about the assignments and exams?
You will have 9 assignments in this module. It is a lot of work and you will submit assignments almost weekly, but if you plan ahead this is manageable.
Assignments 1,3,5 and 8 are “Discussion Forum” assignments.
By this I mean that you will be posting your answers for these assignments on the discussion forum and it will be graded there (Instructions for assignments can be found in the Learning Units on your EUP1501 group sites).
Assignment 2,4,6 and 7 are practical assignments
These must be completed on a separate site, ITLab. Okay, now it might seem confusing, but it really isn’t. Stay calm, read all the info and be patient. In the Learning Units you will find instructions on how to connect to ITLab. You will receive an e-mail (on your myLife e-mail address) or a sms that will inform you that you are registered for ITLab and will include your username and password to log in.
Assignment 9 is a Blog that you will complete on your group site.
Exam? There is no exam for this module. Jipee! Do not get too excited yet. You need to submit a Portfolio instead of writing an exam.
