The courses have been split into semesters and each semester into modules. The modules are presented as per international standards of Instructional design and the template used for learning is very user friendly.
Students can view videos, read content, take tests and record themselves, before submitting the same for review to the instructors, all out of one template. Videos can be viewed as many times for the purpose of learning. Students have value added products like the audio downloads for practice, downloads of learning material, glossary etc.
These templates are places inside a very user-friendly Learning Management System which enables students to see their weekly schedule, class schedule, interact in forums, post blogs, receive and send messages through a private message centre.
The one to one sessions can be scheduled and held from your login home page ( is the first page after you login) and advanced conferencing tools like whiteboard, session recording facility, screen sharing, etc. are available.
