Nowadays, many universities offer distance learning courses. Distance learning gives students and young professionals the opportunity to complete a degree from home, suitable for those who do not have the possibility to follow a full-time programme .
The variety of online Masters programmes is broad. Using the opportunities of the worldwide web, virtually any university offering such programmes is at your disposal. Through various means of media, audio or visual, digital or postal, you will accomplish all courses and tasks demanded within the study. In case of any troubles, your personal mentor will offer guidance and support. Instead of conventional lecture structures, electronic distance learning creates a virtual classroom for both students and teachers in order to communicate and interact.
There are two forms of distance learning, the so-called blended learning and pure e-learning. Blended-learning is a combination of e-learning and occasional, compulsory attendance periods (e.g. one weekend per month). You will conduct a pure e-learning programme exclusively from your own computer at home visiting compulsory courses online.
While you sit the exam at a convenient location, which is rarely ever the university itself, pay attention to the following procedures involved. You nominate an adjudicator (i.e. supervisor) to oversee the exam. This must be a reputable person such as a school principal, tertiary tutor/lecture or police officer.
Set a date, time and place for the exam (usually held at the adjudicator's office).The exam is sent to the adjudicator, who will then conduct the exam.On completion of the examination, the adjudicator directly sends your work to the university.
These steps are typical of how an examination takes place for students completing an under- or postgraduate degree via distance learning.
