Learning methodology

Learners are given an overview of the course and its connection to life and work.

Learners are then exposed to the specific tool(s) used in the course through the various real-life applications of the tool(s).

Learners are then acquainted with the careers and the hierarchy of roles they can perform at workplaces after attaining increasing levels of mastery over the tool(s).

Learners are then acquainted with the architecture of the tool or Tool Map so as to appreciate various parts of the tool, their functions and their inter-relations.

Learners are then exposed to simple application development methodology by using the tool at the beginner’s level

Learners then perform the differential skills related to the use of the tool to improve the given ready-made outputs.

Learners are then engaged in appreciation of real-life case studies developed by the experts.

Learners are then encouraged to proceed from appreciation to imitation of the experts.
