Each module begins with a Introductory section. We think that context and planning are really important to learning. This is where a student can better understand the overall objectives of a module and look at our advice on how to approach their studies.
Core Learning Topics
Every core learning topic follows the same structure, to enable you to have a consistent understanding of our approach.
Every topic sets out the learning outcomes that will be addressed – we try to create these so that you are clear on what you should be able to do, having completed the chapter.
You will also find a range of videos (broken into manageable chunks). These form a core element of learning throughout the topic and sit alongside practice questions at the end of every chapter. This allows you to consolidate your learning and identify your strengths and weaknesses before moving on.
There are question debrief videos which are available for each set of questions where an FI tutor has explained some of the trickier elements of the topic.
Finally, we know it’s important to keep track of your learning. Each chapter has a progress bar and certain activities will show a tick once they are complete. This will allow you to see exactly how you are progressing through each topic.
We have an average of around 12 hours of tutor recordings on every module. These videos replicate tutor-led classroom learning, using FI course notes.
We have recently upgraded our video player to ensure that our videos are responsive and play across all devices. Our video players also:
Easy navigation to the next/previous activities, and back to the course home page, to allow for ease and speed of navigation whilst learning.
You also have control over the speed of the video. This is good as it allows you to customise the rate of learning, meaning you can take on and process information at your own pace.
We use specialist assessment software within courses to support the question practice at the end of every chapter. In addition to this, we also have checkpoint tests and mock exams. This software allows us to replicate the question types and functionality of real exams.
Throughout each course, we have added a range of test activities. These tests include questions from all the topics covered prior to this point in the course. This allows you to consolidate knowledge and ensures that as you progress throughout the course, you are revisiting topics covered at an earlier stage of your learning.
These tests also allow you to build your exam skills for mock exams and, ultimately, the real exam by practising multi-topic tests, with exam standard questions throughout the course.
