The assessment strategy is designed to provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate and develop subject knowledge (exam) and programming skills (coursework). Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
- Coursework – two programming tasks; and
- Examination - 2hr exam – written paper under exam conditions.
There are no formal formative assessment components for this module, but formative feedback will be given to you in tutorials as required, and in the form of regular revision questions in lectures.
You will receive written feedback on your coursework. You will also receive verbal feedback in lectures via revision questions and in-class discussions.
- To provide the conceptual and practical working knowledge of the use of computer systems for the processing of multimedia data.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to: develop your skills and knowledge in computer systems, allowing modules in later semesters to build on this.
The learning and teaching methods include:
- 8 x one two-hour lectures
- 7 x two-hour laboratory sessions
- Guided reading
- Coursework assignments and feedback
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
