One member will finish his part and this will be sent to another member to do his part until everyone in the group has completed the task. The groupings will be done by municipality to easily transfer the aircraft part from one member to another.
How will the instructor supervise the tasks of the students?
The laboratory tasks can be downloaded in iTunes University. During online classes, instructors will perform visual check and will give feedback to ensure that tasks are done properly through a video conference. Through home laboratory practices, students are trained to perform precise handling of parts and eventually gain full understanding of utilizing his/her own motor skills to do a complex job.
