Beginning of the study within the dls
After the application process, DLS variant students are enrolling themselves in DLS and they are given their first subjects. All the necessary teaching materials are sent by the email, within the DL package, which is given to all the DLS students.
Content of DL package
- Teaching materials on CD
- Username and password for access to DLS
- DLS using instruction
- Instructions for creating seminary works
- Educational rules for DLS students
DLS variant student chooses dynamics at his/her own, as well as learning time, which means that he/she is not obligated to attend to all the subjects at the same time. Subject consists of a certain number of teaching modules, the opening and following of which is arbitrary for all the students. The finishing of the work from certain subjects is not connected to the other subjects from the same semester.
The work of system through the year
DL platform is active during the whole year and it is accessible to all the users, 365 days annually, 24 hours a day.
It is predicted that DL variant students have knowledge assessment after all teaching modules are passed. The form of assessment depends on the form and nature of the subject, and it can consist of:
- module test;
- seminary work;
Student is obligated to make texts and projects after all the teaching modules, by which he/she obtains the necessary condition to access to the next module. This enables the continuity in the work of every student as well as the achievement of pre-knowledge for passing to the next teaching modules.
Besides the mentioned knowledge assessments, every student is given the possibility to actively participate in the work, by:
- asking professor
- chat with professor and other colleagues
- discussion with other student and colleagues on the FIT forum
- online consultations with professors
- proposing interesting web addresses and tutorials
All the mentioned activities are implemented within DLS, which makes easier the work and usage, and avoids the usage of additional software solutions. The mentioned activities are also additionally credited and evaluated in the final mark of a student who participates in that subject.
The consultations “on earth” are also predicted, one time per month in previously agreed terms, in which the students will have the possibility to consult their professor directly.
Enrolling in exams
Enrolling in exams in the DLS variant are held “on the ground”, which means in the FIT classrooms.
After all the teaching modules within one subject are completed, a preliminary mark is established, according to the number of the won credits from that subject. Depending on the form of examining, the final mark can be bigger or smaller respect to the preliminary mark. The final mark is the summary of all impressions about a student’s work within the DLS, the mark from projects and works, results on tests, participating in additional activities, the quality of thesis defense, as well as enrolling in the final exam.
The subjects which are successfully passed and defended are being placed into the DLS archive, which is specific for every FIT student. The finished subjects are locked, student still can see it in the system, but he/she does not have the possibility to open and use again some elements, tests, projects etc.
