In the best tradition of many leading academic institutions, some of our courses are delivered to you online.
E-learning means using a computer to deliver part or all of a course. E-learning content can include text, images, animation, audio and video and is now an integral method of teaching students all over the globe. Some of the reasons why this has become a popular way of studying and of delivering course content are given, below.
Accommodates multiple learning styles
Every e-learning module has been carefully written to suit a variety of learning styles with professionally written distance learning materials, which use a variety of delivery methods geared to different learners such as audio, visual and kinaesthetic, thus making the module more effective for certain learners. Of course, if you still have any questions, you can always contact our Distance Learning team!
It’s more cost effective
Because you can study from home, overall student costs are also likely to be less (accommodation, food, child care, travel), and you don’t have to worry about the potential loss of earnings from taking time off work.
The e-learning programme can be taken when needed and sped up or slowed down as necessary.
The lesson format allows you to go through smaller chunks of training that can be used and absorbed for a while before moving on.
It works around time constraints
Each module has been formatted into bite-sized lessons giving you the option to stop and start your training to suit your own time commitments.
It can work from any location and any time
You can access sessions anywhere, anytime. All you need is a computer, meaning you can learn around your family or work commitments.
It can lead to a stronger grasp on the subject
This is because of the many elements that are combined in e-learning to reinforce the message, such as video, audio, quizzes and interaction. There is also the ability to revisit or replay sections of the training that might not have been clear the first time around.
Increased learning capacity and concentration
The neural systems in the brain that control attention and store information tire very quickly and consequently seek other stimulation (i.e. attention is lost). They recover pretty quickly generally, so the training programme has been designed to work with this quick fatigue/boredom pattern to ensure you learn effectively.
Gauge your progress
Interactive, on-going, online activities, test your knowledge and understanding at the end of each section. You will receive immediate feedback about your progress and at the end of your learning.
Lots of fun
The use of images, sound, video, text and quizzes add variety to the learning material, keeping you interested, thus making learning easier.
Try it for yourself
