  Description
Introductory activities
Webconferencing Presentation of subject contents and/or activities presentation through webconference. This activity requires synchronous presence of students and faculty. Its development allows different degrees of interactivity depending on the intended objectives. This activity can be recorded at the time of its development to facilitate subsequent consultation.
Webinairs Lectures, roundtables and presentations focused on specific topics carried out by professionals in the field, to deepen knowledge of certain subjects through webconference or other tools. Its development allows different degrees of interactivity depending on the intended objectives. This activity can be recorded to facilitate its later consultation.
Webcasting Presentation of subject contents in previously recorded video format. This activity does not require synchronous presence of students and teachers and does not allow interactivity directly. However, it can be used to propose asynchronous interactive activities such as a forum.
Self-monitoring activities Activities proposed to the student, with a minimum weight, which serve so that the student can self-regulate their learning.
Problem solving, exercises Analysis and resolution of a problem or concrete practical exercise related to the topic of the subject. This activity has a more limited scope and a smaller extension than the assignments.
Forums of debate Activities in which, individually or in groups, the participants argue and confront ideas on a specific topic, by using asynchronous tools such as the Virtual Campus Forum.
Practical cases/ case studies Statement of a situation (real or simulated) in which the student must work to give a solution to the topic, solve a series of specific questions or make a global reflection.
Assignments Exercises carried out by the student based on material and references provided by the teaching staff. This activity has a greater scope and extension than problem solving.
Reading written documents and graphs Reading and working of documentation published in different formats, with the aim of facilitating the development of competences with more theoretical nature and acquire the knowledge necessary for the development of practical activities.
Personal attention

Personalized attention
Description
This guidance is carried out by the teacher of each subject with the students enrolled in the same. The purpose of this guidance is to plan, guide, dynamise, monitor and evaluate the student's learning process, taking into account their profile interests, needs, previous knowledge, etc.) and the characteristics / requirements of the context ( EEES, academic / professional profile, social-labor demand, etc.). The actions that will be carried out are the following: - Welcome to the subject - Weekly dynamism - News and events - Resolution of academic doubts - Retroaction with the correction of activities - Abandonment of the subject - End of the subject The development of these actions will be carried out with the support of the tools offered by the Virtual Campus Moodle, within the virtual classroom of each subject. So that the best orientation and possible follow-up is offered considering the face-to-face or virtual modality of each subject.
