The first page of each block indicates the numbers and titles of the units comprising the block. In the first block of each course, we start with the course introduction. This is followed by a brief introduction to the block. Each unit has an introduction in which we tell you about the contents of the units. We outline a list of objectives which we expect you to achieve working through this unit. This is followed by the main body of the unit, which is divided into various sections and sub-sections. We end up each unit by summarizing its content to enable you to recall the main points. In each unit, there are Check Your Progress which are meant to help you to assess your understanding of the subject. You must try attempting Check Your Progress.

5.2

Audio-Video Material

In addition to the print material, audio and video programmes are being prepared for each course. The audiovideo material is supplementary to the print material.
