  • Introduction to Delivery Format
    • Looking at RAE
    • Looking at MyKangan
  • Introduction to the Content
  • In-class Task

Introduction to Delivery Format

The classes will be delivered in 3 hour schedules. The content will be posted on this blog as well as on MyKangan. Tasks, discussions and research will be conducted inside the 3 hour slot and at home.

You are expected to work towards goals independently and to be able to operate as part of a team. In a work place you will sometimes be lucky to work with people that you easily get along with, but unfortunately you might often have to work with people that you might not easily get along with. A professional looks beyond this and finds ways to function in a professional environment with a range of personalities.


Important: You need to submit all your assessments on MyKangan. It is your responsibility to follow up due dates and access to MyKangan.

  1. Day 1 Task – this task is a simple comprehension task to establish student participation. (due: after the first class)
  2. Assessment 1 – Establish a Design Brief
  3. Assessment 2 – Design a Website

RAE – Research and Exploration or Class of Federico

This blog will be or main form of contact. It will be accessible from anywhere as long as you have internet access.

The web address is http://www.classoffederico.wordpress.com, and the name is RAE – Research and Exploration – Never Stop Learning. You might also call it Class of Federico or COF.

Make sure to leave comments on a regular basis. Any questions that you have can be posted as a comment. The posts for each class will be released prior to the class and in some cases the evening before.

A link above the blog’s banner with the title ‘Cert IV Web-based Tech’ will let you access all classes and posts according to class.

RAE has many links listed to improve your learning experience. Links for Web has 9 excellent links that I would like you to look at now and spend 10 mins exploring them.

Links for Learning is filled with great websites. Let us just have a look at these four for now:

Adobe TV
Dzine Blog
Computer Arts Magazine

Make sure to explore the links when you have some free time. The best learning is done by yourself exploring and questioning.


MyKangan is Kangan’s content delivery platform for all classes. You will find all the content on MyKangan and as stated before: you will submit your assessments here.

To access MyKangan please open Kangan’s student portal and click on MyKangan. Next find the class by unit title. This can be a bit hard to see, so make sure to know the unit titles.

The unit title for this class will be combined in (the catchy name):


As you can see, the titles are long and hard to remember. The easiest is to look at the last segment with the unit code and title.

The unit itself will be structured in the same way, that you have classes listed as Class 1, Class 2, etc and assessments will be listed by title inside an assessment folder.

This is also where you will submit your assessments. You will find hyperlinks with names such as Submit Assessment  1 here.

You can send messages to your teacher and you can leave comments as well. I am always open to suggestions, so please feel free to forward ideas about content or software that you would like to cover.

Any questions?

It is an electronic form of communication and transmits through these cables and the content transmitted and translated from large amounts of coding and data is displayed on a Web Browser which shows Graphics, Videos and plays Sounds.
