The classes are informal and allow for question and answer sessions, technical advice and support depending on your needs. You will receive regular assessment and feedback on your progress. You will work as a class, in small break out groups; in pairs and one-to-one with your tutor. All course material will be instantly accessible via the learning platform and the sessions may be recorded so that you may return to them later. This will only be done with group consent. Learners will be encouraged to use the class forums to engage with each other during the class and to support each other with project work between classes if required. In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.

    Entry requirements

    A keen interest in the subject and the ability to attend the sessions regularly is key to your success. As part of the course you will be asked to read material, take notes, listen to instructions and discuss related topics, therefore students should have a reasonable level of skill in speaking, reading and writing in English.

    What you need to know before you enrol

    It would be helpful if you have some familiarity with Macintosh and/or PC computers and know how to use standard menus and commands; however, this is not an essential requirement as these skills can be picked up during the course. As this is a course primarily delivered on computers; students will be encouraged to be aware of fatigue and eye strain and take breaks when necessary. Your tutor will therefore build in project assignments, reconvening as a group to share the progress of work. Information about computers and the relevant software will be provided by the tutor.

    What you need

    If you are learning software, it would be of benefit to possess the software for use at home. As a student of Morley College you are entitled to a generous discount on Adobe CC Software. It would be helpful for you to have a pen and notepad, as you may wish to take notes. Also recommended is a storage device such as a USB Memory stick (minimum 8GB), mini-hard drive or access to a cloud storage service. This is for storage of media during the course, and of your work at the end. The Vectorworks software and student license can be obtained from the Vectorworks website. You will need to provide credentials to show you are a student at Morley College London and the simplest way to do that is use your Morley e-mail address, which is your student number followed by @morley.ac.uk e.g. 12345678@morley.ac.uk Students who provide us with their personal e-mail address are sent details of their Morley e-mail address and how to access it.
