1. Connecting – A student needs a personal computer with an Internet connection and uses a web browser to access our e-learning environment. Instructional materials come in text, graphics, audio and video formats and are available online 24/7. Students can download and print them as they wish. 2. Instruction – Instruction is delivered primarily asynchronously (i.e., where the teacher and learner are not physically at the same place at the same time). Students work with materials either on their own or in discussion groups. They interact directly with each other and with the faculty typically through e-mail, threaded discussions (online discussion boards), chat and web-based whiteboard facilities, and some times through voice or video communication during synchronous sessions. 3. Assignments – All readings, work sessions, assignments and other tasks are pre-specified and monitored on a continuous basis. Written assignments are submitted online. Exams are taken online. Access to grades and feedback from instructors are provided online
