to course materials on a weekly basis on our e-learning platform. It is advisable that you study assigned materials
before every trainer-led session. For the trainer-led component of your course, you
are expected to be available for virtual meetings with your trainer on specified
days and times, since a missed session cannot be recouped.
How is e-learning delivered at English REALM?
All our courses are delivered online using Moodle learning management system (LMS). Moodle is designed to support social and interactive learning. It offers flexibility to the course designer, promotes independent learning and learner engagement with a course material.
Moodle LMS allows us to create interactive learning opportunities, such as learners contributing in forums, rating each other’s posts, and so forth. It is also suitable for learners to perform such activities as upload their coursework, take quizzes and receive feedback. Last but not least, our learners attend weekly live sessions via Zoom, interact with their trainer via live chat or by email.
Online sessions led by a trainer – an integral part of our courses, are conducted through Zoom offers such features as onscreen whiteboard, document and desktop sharing and synchronous text chat.
We utilize all these (and many other) features of our online learning platform to create a dynamic online environment that supports self-directed learning and meaningful trainer-to-trainee and trainee-to-trainee interactions.
