Distance Learning

How is distance learning delivered?

Each distance learning module runs for 14 weeks and is delivered entirely online. Learning material in each weekly unit is made up of: a printable study guide, videoed lectures and discussions, downloadable podcasts (for listening to in the car), guided reading, interactive quizzes, and an online discussion forum. To participate you will need access to broadband that can stream a YouTube video.
