ANNEX OF THE COURSE OUTLINE

Alternative ways of examining a course in emergency situations

Teacher (full name): Elena Raptou
Contact details: elenra@agro.duth.gr
Supervisors: (1) No
Evaluation methods: (2) Written examination with distance learning methods, provided that the integrity and reliability of the examination are ensured.

 

Implementation Instructions: (3) The examinations will be carried out according to the examination program that will be announced by the secretariat of the Department

The examination in the course will be written and carried out using e-class.

First, students will have to join Microsoft Teams or Skype for Business in order to be identified. The link of the Microsoft Teams or Skype for Business meeting will be sent to students via e-class, exclusively to the institutional accounts of those who have registered for the course and have learned the terms of distance teaching. Students will have to log in to the examination room through their institutional account; otherwise they will not be able to participate. Before the start of the exam, students will show their identity card to the camera, so that they can be identified

Then, students will join e-class for their examination. Students will have to answer 20 questions (True or False). Each of the questions is scored with 0.5 credits.
