Virtual revisions classes using a VLE : an initial review

Volpe, Guglielmo (2005) Virtual revisions classes using a VLE : an initial review. Investigations in university teaching and learning, 2 (2). pp. 76-82. ISSN 1740-5106


Revision classes in preparation for the final examination are seen by both students and lecturers as an important moment in the overall structure of a module. Students have the opportunity to clarify issues concerning the structure of the examination paper, to discuss issues that have proved difficult to understand and to go over specific topics. Lecturers have the opportunity to provide a ‘closure’ to their work by highlighting the learning outcomes that will be tested in the examination as well as informally testing the students’ overall level of preparation and by providing some explanations of difficult topics. This paper explores the role of revision classes and of incentives in the learning process of student, focussing on the author's own practice.
