The course includes lectures. During the course, readings will be provided by the teacher and they are not available on the moodle platform.
During the course of the lessons, will be arranged tests, reserved for those who regularly follow classroom lessons.
This method does not correspond to an additional institutional call to examination.
In the first call after the end of the course, the student will be able to do one of the tests; in this case the new test will completely replace the old (vote included), or it will be able to do the exam in "normal" mode.
A student who does not intend to use this faculty will of course do the exam in "normal mode".
