Tutorials: Individualised teaching suport in which the teacher attends one student or several students with video.conference in their specific educational process.

Exercises and Continuos Assessment Test (CAT): Students must provide evidence of their progress by completing tasks and tests.

Individual study: the student works independently (personal study, reading books and articles, doing exercises) all of which are fundamental in autonomous learning.

Annotation: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.
