THE TREE MAP
Welcome to our LILAC module for students!
In this module, you will learn how to transition from face-to-face to online education and gain the necessary skills to learn a foreign language online effectively.
Our TREE MAP (see image) illustrates suggested elements of this transition.
The TREE MAP explained
To successfully move to e-learning, you should activate your digital skills (the gearwheel) which, like the roots of a tree, lay the foundations for this transition. Digital skills are fostered by the organisational skills which, like vital nourishment, sustain your language learning awareness, your social and collaboration engagement as well as your self-assessment, all elements of paramount importance in online learning.
The module comprises of 5 units. Each unit focuses on a specific aspect of e-learning and is divided into a number of lessons whose content is totally independent and autonomous. So you can choose whether to follow the module in sequential order (from Unit 1 to Unit 5) or jump around the different sections and explore the unit(s)/lesson(s) you are particularly interested in. All lessons have been designed to be visually appealing and as highly engaging as possible through the use of innovative educational tools and software programmes such as H5P, Genially and Canva.
At the end of each Unit, you will find a final quiz to self-assess your learning. You will receive immediate, automatic feedback on your answers and you can take each quiz as many times as you wish.
Before starting with the module, take a virtual tour of our interactive glossary of e-learning terminology for students which gives you an overview of the most commonly used e-learning terms.
