Although the standards that are set here are quite high, we believe they are appropriate, as the entry requirement for a diploma course is the completion of a Certificate IV in IT or equivalent.
There are two main areas in the Toolbox: the projects and the resource packs.
The resource packs are generally self-contained and provide theory and activities to ensure learners gain the skills necessary to complete the projects. These activities include formative assessments. You may choose to ask learners to submit some of these activities if it suits your assessment requirements.
The projects provide an opportunity for learners to apply the skills (summative assessment) learnt in the resource pack. A number of collaborative activities have been built into the projects, requiring more facilitation at this point (eg setting up discussion forums and organising interview times).
