The course is suitable for FE (including Access to HE) and HE students, particularly those with little or no prior experience of critical thinking. It is cross-disciplinary so can be used by any student, whatever they’re studying.
Many modules include downloadable ‘Handy Reminders’ and ‘end of topic’ lists outlining learning outcomes. Students can keep these to use for revision and as refresher material after they’ve completed the course.
The course is available on an institution-wide subscription basis. The files are embedded into your VLE/LMS using SCORM files, so is hosted completely separately by you in your institution’s own environment. Students can be given access via a link or pathway in your VLE/LMS.
Unfortunately the course is only available for institutions to subscribe to, not individuals.
