The Format of e-Learning

... through Calvary Life Tutors utilising advanced e-Learning

1.  Introduction

The learning format, facillitated through Calvary Life Tutors is based on the Objective Directed Learning principle. It is offered on a part-time basis in Tuition Centres and due to its use of IT-based learning technology, is labelled as e-learning.

In order to explain this flexible model we list the main conventions:

  1. Organizational Structures
  2. Support Resources
  3. Courses and Programmes
  4. Learning Activities
  5. Assessment of Objectives

2.  Organizational Structure

Registration, learning, research, assessment and supervision are organized to operate within a decentralized structure:

Note 1: The resources developed for our e-learning are also suitable for any contact method of tuition if there is a need for it and if the situation is conducive to this method.

3.  Support Resources

The tuition model is characterized by the following learning and support resources:

4.  Courses and Programmes

Note: The first five programmes are completed in part time (evening) classes and carry a weight of 80 credits each.

5.  Learning Activities

The theoretical and practical learning activities as well as the continuous assessment of how objectives are reached (through observed outcomes) are implemented through the following five basic activities:

Note 2: If this method is followed, the material from more than 200 lectures will have been processed by the student during ±1200 hours of activity to justify 120 notional credits. CLT will use these notional credits.

6.  Assessment of Objectives

Different methods of assessment are used to gauge the depth of ability of the student. These ensure good integration and retention of the theoretical learning material and will reflect the level of outcomes (reaching the objectives) in four areas:

Each academic year, which in reality may take between 8 months and two years, is divided into courses or modules. The student will be assessed in each course or module. A practical mark may also be given for group work and a student's Workfile (portfolio) where required.
