How and where to get help

There are various places you can get help from, depending on what you need. A good starting point is your Learnline material and your discussion board.

Make sure you check the recordings in the Online-Classroom-Collaborate on Learnline if you have missed a Collaborate session, as your lecturer will run a session on each of your assignments.
