Getting started
This section guides you through how to use learn@nec. The useful videos, course plans and assessment guidance are found here, and are all designed to help you get off to the best possible start.

Your course materials
These have been designed, written and sourced by subject experts and are specifically designed for independent study, helping you to work through the course in the way that suits you. Activities and assignments throughout the course will help you to prepare for formal assessment and provide essential feedback to you and your tutor about how you are progressing.

Learning journal
To help you make sense of what you’re studying, we encourage you to reflect on what and how you’ve been learning. You’ll have your own private space to do this.

Essential skills
We want to make sure you get the most out of your studies, so you’ll also have access to resources to help you to develop skills essential for this and further study, as well as to provide a helping hand if you need it with spelling, punctuation and grammar.

Forums
Discussion with your peers is an excellent way to talk through ideas and gain a new perspective on a topic you’re studying. The forums are there to help you do just that, and to interact with other people studying your chosen subject.
