What is e-Learning

Our e-Learning programs are designed for engineers, technicians and technologists who prefer not to be limited by time or distance and who need to develop skills and knowledge in a particular subject.

e-Learning is a form of distance learning, where some or all of the course components are presented online. In the eLearning environment the presenter of the material and the participants are not physically present in the same room. Instead, they can meet in a ‘virtual’ room. In our courses, the material is shared via the Internet in a live ‘webinar’.

Our e-Learning courses incorporate a live approach, also referred to as the synchronous or video-conferencing approach. This ensures that the training is interactive, which maintains the motivation and discipline necessary for successful completion. The live sessions are supported with reading and assignment work.

You will be required to ‘log in’ to your webinar classroom at pre-arranged times together with several other students from all over the world. The moderator in attendance will be a real lecturer, qualified and experienced in the particular topic. The presentation (or live webinar) is usually between 60 and 90 minutes, but this can vary depending on the number of questions from students. At any stage the lecturer can be signalled if queries on the course material exist. After each live presentation, there is a question and answer session where you can talk to the lecturer, as well as the other participants.
