Coventry University believes that a good student experience is central to learning at a world-class standard, and we’re committed to a supportive, flexible and dynamic approach that puts the learner firmly at the heart of everything we do.

Thanks to our partnership with FutureLearn, we’re ideally placed to provide an engaging online learning experience, carefully designed to ensure the best possible chance of student success.

This is the two-week introductory course in the Management Research Skills program, which forms part of our online MA Management (Advanced Standing) degree.

The program is made up of 10 weeks of study (five two-week short courses), taught on FutureLearn, followed by an assessment; details of which can be found on the program pages of enrolled students.

In addition to the courses in FutureLearn, learners enrolled on the program also have access to live tutorials, student support sessions and further study resources and services.

Capturing your thinking

A great way to get the most out of your course is to consistently capture your thinking. Exactly what you choose to record will be different for everyone, but it will probably include your notes, useful resources and reflections on your progress.

We call this collection a ‘learning log’. The aim is to allow you to regularly look back on what you’ve learned and articulate your thoughts and feelings about the experience. A learning log is informal and can be kept private. However, in the spirit of social learning, you’re encouraged to share as much of your work with your fellow learners as feels comfortable.

It’s up to you how you record your log entries but you might want to consider:

If you’re a registered Coventry University student, you also have access to Microsoft OneNote as part of Office 365. You can find out more about this in your induction.
