Catch-up classes

Weeks 1 & 2

We have been trialing basic hybrid delivery with poor results. Week 1 has was filmed in two videos (Wk1 Part A & Part B) with a gap of 10 mins. Week 2 has poor audio. For catch-up, it is therefore recommended to watch the recordings from the hidden resources page of the 2020 course.
