The country has been in lockdown since March and we’ve been advised to stay in our homes as much as we possibly can. Colleges have closed and non-essential work is postponed, meaning you’re forced to try and carry on with your course from home for the foreseeable future.
To make things easier for you, we’ve compiled our most useful resources for learners and lecturers to help carry on as normally as they possibly can. Please keep checking back to this page as we will be updating it with more content to help you.
Keep checking our daily news feed for the latest on how the industry is reacting to the COVID-19 situation.
Exercises & Quizzes
If you’re using Zoom with your lecturer/learners, why not share your screen and play this Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? game for unvented systems!
Thanks to Sergio Afonso from Boston College for providing these exercises.
Remember, you can always access all of our past issues online for free, all of which have tons of useful exercises in – along with the answers. These are available on our Learning Resources page.
Make sure you follow us on social media, as we are posting a daily Kahoot challenge which you can access from your phone or laptop. Again, the full bank of more than 40 quizzes and hundreds of questions based on your syllabus is available in the Learning Resources page.
Access our Google Drive folder here which contains Boston College Plumbing Lecturer Sergio Afonso’s guided PowerPoint on Hot Water Systems.
We are adding to these regularly, so keep checking in.
