For more practical content, in-person attendance in labs can be combined with individual or group work outside the classroom through Remote Classroom, along with student monitoring and tutoring via forums and other discussion mechanisms. Other e-learning strategies will also be employed, such as self-assessment of completed work, all supported through Aula Global. In cases where specific software with a license that is not easily accessible to students is required for a particular practice or lab, in-person attendance in those lab sessions will be emphasized, at the expense of other sessions that are more suitable for a blended learning approach.
