Description
=== EXCEPTIONAL PLANNING ===
Given the uncertain and unpredictable evolution of the health alert caused by COVID-19, the University of Vigo establishes an extraordinary planning that will be activated when the administrations and the institution itself determine it, considering safety, health and responsibility criteria both in distance and blended learning. These already planned measures guarantee, at the required time, the development of teaching in a more agile and effective way, as it is known in advance (or well in advance) by the students and teachers through the standardized tool.

=== ADAPTATION OF THE METHODOLOGIES ===
* Teaching methodologies maintained

Synchronous classes at the same time slots than the in-class teaching activities, supported by Campus Remoto and FAITIC. Other supplementary platforms may be used to guarantee the accessibility to teaching content.

* Teaching methodologies modified

In the case of a lockdown, more extensive use of a flipped learning methodology will be used, uploading to faitic support multimedia resources for selected lessons, including recorded video classes, podcast, quizzes as well as weekly activities to be completed by the students.

* Non-attendance mechanisms for student attention (tutoring)

Tutoring sessions may be carried out online: either asynchronously (e-mail, FAITIC forums, etc.) or by videoconference, in this case by appointment

* Modifications (if applicable) of the contents

The contents will be maintained in case of a health alert.

* Additional bibliography to facilitate self-learning

1.- Documentation for the audio opensource software Audacity: https://manual.audacityteam.org
2.- Documentation for the multimedia (video and audio) software OBS: https://obsproject.com/wiki/
3.- Documentation for python: https://www.python.org/doc/
4.- How to install a virtual machine using VirtualBox: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Documentation
5.- GNURadio documentation: https://www.gnuradio.org/docs/

* Other modifications

No further modifications are expected since for the development of the activities for the mentoring work and seminars; the students will be used open-source or licensed software by UVIGO.

=== ADAPTATION OF THE TESTS ===
* Tests already carried out

Since the number of expected students in the subject is reduced, all the assessment will follow the same methodology than in case of in-class teaching activities. Only a final test is scheduled.

Final Test: [Previous Weight 20%] [Proposed Weight 20%]


* Pending tests that are maintained

Final Test: [Previous Weight 20%] [Proposed Weight 20%]
