|Type of courses|| Distance Learning Degree
Distance learning is a flexible form of learning where a student can study from home, work, on the move or wherever else is convenient, and at times to suit themselves.
Unlike the traditional classroom environments, an online distance learning course utilizes a Virtual Learning Environment. The Virtual Learning Environment offers the benefits of distance learning without the drawbacks, providing students with the flexibility to attend classes and study from anywhere: work, home or even on the move. The system is designed to track and manage the learning process in real-time and it provides students with immediate access to learning materials. However, the real innovation is that this learning platform has created an environment in which both students and tutors can actively take part in real-time conversations and students can listen to, and view, live lectures and seminars over the internet. Regular assessment of students’ work ensures their progress and engagement throughout the course.
|Length of courses|| 2-5 years for a degree
