  • In Blackboard one can find over 90 tests which can be accessed from the question pool in accordance with the principle of random selection. The tests are provided for every level in different variants: in accordance with the six categories (phonology, morphology, syntax, vocabulary, text comprehension and listening comprehension) and the level of difficulty (*, **, ***).
  • The exercises are defined by their autonomy and the possibility of receiving a direct feedback. The students can either check their vocabulary, a language function or a structural element. In addition, they can try to solve exercises from the fields of communication and interaction (text comprehension, listening comprehension).   
  • There is the possibility of tracking one's own learning progress in that the students can view the results of the exercises in the grade book. What is always listed are the last results of the self-tests that one has completed. This report can be used to see what actual self-tests one has already taken and in which areas one still has problems. Thereby one can continue on with one's learning progress in a targetted targeted manner.  
  • The e-learning program was developed as a facultative offer for self-learning and practise practice purposes. In order to point out the manifold possibilities that the program offers for learning Modern Greek and successfully completing the course of studies, a sensible interlinkage (blended learning) with traditional face-to-face teaching is aimed for. The re-usage of multimedia exercises with illustrations, audio and video (songs, TV and radio shows, comics and newspaper articles) in the seminars increases the visibility and attractivity of the program. In the face-to-face sessions problems are included with which the students had to deal with when working on the exercises on their own.  
  • For the entire duration of the program "Modern Greek Language" an accompanying tutorial is planned:  
    • For the process-accompanying evaluation of the results for both the language teaching as well as the self-study phases based on the exercises
    • For the individual accompaniment and motivation of the learning process
    • For the more efficient focus on special difficulties during the learning acquisition phase
