What are the advantages of eLearning?
eLearning is student-centred, flexible and convenient. With the ease of online delivery, the emphasis in the educational process shifts from teaching to learning. You do not have to follow a prescribed pattern and there is more scope for learning according to your own preferred style. In the online environment, everyone has an equal opportunity to participate in class discussions.
Will I be missing the give and take of a conventional classroom setting?
EduCentral offers a highly personal and interactive learning experience. In fact, you may find the EduCentral programme more interactive and engaging than sitting in a classroom! There are no lectures and no 'last benches'! Everyone participates.
Can I expect to have any synchronous classes?
No. The main advantage of online learning is that it allows you to study anytime, anywhere and hence we do not have synchronous classes.
Do you have any contact classes?
No. You do not have to attend any contact classes for this online programme.
What time are classes held?
You can participate in course discussions at any time, day or night, wherever you have an internet connection. Most students will log on several times each week to participate in discussion, but there is no set class schedule so you can attend classes at any time of day.
How much time should I set aside for studying?
Typically, you will have to spend about 30 hours for a coursespread over a two to four week period. The actual time spent would depend on your pace of reading and prior knowledge of the subject.
Do classes have specific start and end dates?
We will certainly suggest start and end dates for each course.
Do I have to log in at certain times or a specific number of times each week?
You can log in anytime you want. We require students to log in at least 4 days a week.
If I have any doubt related to the subject matter, whom should I contact?
Our courses are detailed and we do beef up the content whenever we receive clarifications/ doubts from the students. We, therefore, think that you may not have the need to raise any doubts. However, if you need to raise any questions, you may do so through our Student Support Form and you will hear from us within 24 hours.
