BTEC Level 3 Engineering - Unit 6 - Microcontroller Systems for Engineers

Postby The G » Wed Jan 10, 2018 12:32 pm

Hi All,

I am a teacher at a Sixth Form College in Suffolk, delivering the Level 3 BTEC Engineering Extended Diploma.

Just wondering if there is anyone on here either also delivering it, or involved with the design of the resources (and the Introduction pdf about E-Blocks and Flowcode 7)?

It would be very handy to have a dedicated section on the forum for that if possible please...

We are working through the exercises in the pdf http://www.matrixtsl.com/resources/file ... course.pdf

Some of them are easy to follow, but many are a bit vague and it would be appreciated if there are solutions handy, particularly as we don't have experienced programmers on our team. We are learning as we go, and I'm sure many other colleges are in the same boat when BTEC made this unit mandatory.

Thanks,
G

Thanks for the post, G.

If you (or anyone else) has specific issues or questions on the exercises in our course or on Unit 6 in general, please post them here and we'll try to answer. We know many teachers are concerned with this unit and we're happy to help where we can.

Also, we will be creating a new version of this course over the coming months and so any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Steve.

Hi Steve,
Thanks for the response and that would be a great help. Is there any way we could have a section on the forum rather than just one topic with all the questions, otherwise it will quite difficult for anyone looking for specific answers to weed through a single long topic thread?
Also, will there be a distinction between teachers posting here and students accessing the information? Bearing in mind that even as teachers, many of us are doing it for the first time and may ask questions that seem obvious to seasoned programmers.

Hi G,

I've created a new category for you specific for the BTEC. Thanks for the suggestion.
