Your course has been divided into eight learning modules. Each module is filled with relevant topics to learn and explore. Every week a new module will unlock, allowing you to complete your course in eight weeks. Your course has been structured this way to benefit your learning, and you’ll be engaged with Masterclasses and Live Session tutorials where you can chat to your tutor and get feedback on your work. You’ll be asked to complete a series of Quizzes and practical Mini Tasks each week. Mini Tasks are uploaded in the Creative Studio where you’ll share these for tutor and fellow student feedback and engagement.
We’d love to know more about you, so feel free to upload your profile photo and some details about yourself within your account settings, as its always nice to put a face to a name.
Now some more about the platform and how things work!
Quizzes & Final Assessment Task
At the end of each module, you’ll be asked to take a quiz to assess your learning. Quizzes in Modules 1-7 are test-based and make up 70% of your final score. You’ll then be asked to complete a final practical assessment task in Module 8 will accounts for 30% of your final score. At the end of the course you’ll receive personalised feedback from your Tutor, your overall mean score and grade and Diploma Certification from LCS.
An overall mean score of achievement will then be used to award your diploma at Pass, Merit or Pass with Distinction levels of achievement. You’ll need to obtain a minimum of 70% to pass the course and each of the learning module quizzes.
|Overall Final Score
(Mean Score) %
|Final Grade Awarded|
|90% – 100 %||PASS with DISTINCTION|
|80% – 89%||PASS with MERIT|
|70% – 79 %||PASS
Your grade average is calculated as a mean score over the 7 module quizzes and your final assessment task. You’ll need a 70% grade average to pass the course. Quizzes can be re-taken again only once. You score on your first, or second attempt if you decide to re-sit the quiz will be taken as final. If you do not obtain 70% in a particular quiz score, higher scores in alternative quizzes can even out results or additional points awarded in your final assessment task. If you’re stuck on modules or have difficulties in understanding quiz requirements, you can seek support from LCS tutors. We’re here to help and support you every step of the way.
Alongside the modules and quizzes, you can engage with tutors and fellow learner in the Creative Studio. Inside the studio, you’ll find various discussion groups where tutors will engage with you. Ask questions and seek feedback here, as your questions will benefit other learners too, and will open up discussion as well as establishing a community. You’ll upload your Mini-Tasks here to receive feedback, support and encouragement here.
Mini Tasks sit alongside quizzes and relate to learning in each of your modules. We do recommend that you engage with these as much as possible, to gain the most from your learning and time with us. Mini Tasks offer creative and practical engagement and are a great way to build connections with the LCS community, as well as receiving personalised feedback from LCS Tutors on your strengths and areas for improvement.
