METHODOLOGY
This course will be delivered using instructor-led online learning. The course methodology will be as follows:

    • Each day from 12 to 16 February 2024 there will be made available two recorded video lectures, which are recorded in the face-to-face ITU Centre of Excellence workshop organized by National Institute of Telecommunications in Poland. In total, there are 10 video lectures during the course.
    • Discussion forum will be organized based on discussion topics given on a daily basis, where students are highly encouraged to participate and interact with instructors and other students.
    • Final Quiz test will be assigned on the last day of the course, 19 February 2024.
    • All announcements for all events (lectures, quiz and forum) will be given in a timely manner (prior to the event) by the course tutor.
Assessment and Grading
On the last day of the course a Final Quiz test will be assigned. It will consist of 20 questions (multiple choices).

The Final Quiz will be open from 00:00 hours on Monday (19th of February 2024) according to the GMT+1 time, and will remain open for 30 hours after opening, so each participant can choose the most convenient time to solve it. However, after the start of the attempt the Quiz should be completed in 90 minutes.

The Final Quiz is passed with a grade of 70% or higher. The course evaluation for obtaining the ITU certificate is based primarily on the results from the Final Quiz, however, replies to the raised discussion topics in the course forum may also be considered in the evaluation process.

Each fully registered participant who successfully completes the course with a total grade of 70% or higher will receive an ITU Certificate for this course.
