Prior knowledge of the students

If an Inquiry Learning Space (ILS) is used in a stand-alone version, care must be taken that students have the necessary background knowledge and understand all the terminology that is used in the ILS. If this is not the case, this information can be given concurrently with the ILS. There are a few options to do this:

  • In the orientation and conceptualisation phase, necessary prior domain information can be directly displayed (as text, diagrams, videos, etc.).
  • Internet links to background information can be included in each phase (using the insert link icon ), some permanent information can also be displayed under the tools bottom bar (see tooltip Make use of the general tool facility).
