Crafting Module

Reorganizing the layout of this course
Just as with the Foraging Course, the Crafting Course is getting an overhaul to help you to flow more easily through the material. Below is the new layout in Blue. The old layout is at the bottom of the page, in Yellow. Use whichever you prefer.

How to work through this course
There are 4 levels of unit access in this course. This is to encourage progression through the 32 units. The levels are called A, B, C, D. Student's starting the course begin with access to all the units at Level A - there are 13 Level A units, 12 of them are assessed in some way. When students have successfully completed the Level A assessed work and the tutor has marked it, they can move on to the Level B units, and so on. See the Welcome unit for full details about how the course works.
