In this journal you can recount your experiences undertaking the subject. The things that were clear, weren’t clear, the things you found easy or found difficult, the tricks you learnt, the traps you may have fallen into, and whether you found the experience of undertaking this subject online as appropriate. Basically, anything and everything about you and your interaction with the subject. You’ll be asked to update your journal at the end of each unit. Your Subject Coordinator will be the only person able to see your journal. Marks will be awarded for completeness (all units covered) [8 marks], content (reflections, observations, critique and/or conclusions) [16 marks] and evidence of your own learning [6 marks].
