Learning Strategies and Methods
The programme will be delivered fully online using the Open Campus “Learning Exchange” environment (Moodle) and web-conferencing software (e.g. Blackboard Collaborate). This means that all materials, teaching-learning activities and assessments will be made available through the online learning management system of the Open Campus. In instances where students are required to engage in course-related activity off-line in the real-world environment, all output from such activity, in whatever format, must be submitted through the learning management system.
Assessment for all courses - 100% course work. The course work will normally be broken down into three components: Components A, B, and C. Students will get detailed information about the assessment activities for each course in the course space. All courses require participation in the online space, as participation will contribute to the overall grade.
