Learning activities and methodology
The teaching will be developed focused on the student in order to let him acquire the competences on working efficiently with the most common computing applications. During the term several test will be done in order to evaluate the theoretical concepts. In addition, several practices are needed to evaluate the complete material. Therefore, the 6 ETCS credits are distributed in the following manner: 1. Theoretical lectures: 1.2 ETCS credits 2. Practice lectures: 1.2 ETCS credits 3. Evaluation tests: 0.5 ETCS credits 4. Individual work: 3.1 ETCS credits
