Our e-learning experience differs depending on which course you choose. All courses include weekly chat sessions with your tutor and other students on the course, which are conducted through an interactive seminar (called Wimba). The chat sessions will include text and/or voice/video chat, as well as an opportunity to 'share' your tutor's desktop so that s/he can navigate you through websites, powerpoint presentations and other work.
You will also be required to undertake weekly assignments between sessions. This can be downloaded from a special website (a Wiki), where you will also be able to upload your work during the week. You'll be expected to dedicate between one - two hours a week to these self-study projects. A full technical specification is listed in the 'Materials' tab above.
