The Tudors: Course Preparation
Our online courses use a system called ELE: The Exeter Learning Environment. ELE works on both PCs and Macs. Students will be given their own username and password to access it.
All students are reminded that to safeguard your own work and out of courtesy to others, it is sensible to ensure that the computer you will be using has anti-virus software installed and that this is regularly updated. Likewise, mac users who use Microsoft Word should ensure that they have enabled macro virus protection (this setting is found as a tick box in Word under 'preferences').
Preparatory study is not expected.
Students who register before the deadline may be given access to the discussion environment prior to the course start. In this case, students are welcome to log in and introduce themselves to each other and to the tutor before the official start date. By way of an ‘ice breaker’ you may like to give a little detail about your reasons for choosing this subject, which book(s) on the Tudors - fiction or non fiction - you have enjoyed, and/or your favourite Tudor personality.
