Both the instructors of the course will supervise the students' work within the different forums of the virtual course, where they will be able to contact these professors on any doubts or concerns they could have regarding the contents of the different units of study or any other general concerns. Thus, there will be a general forum, as well as five specialized forums for each of the five units of the course, and other additional forums such as the "Tablón de Anuncios" (for news or announcements).

Additionally, the students can contact the instructors via e-mail or in person, by making a previous appointment with them:
