Course of the program are allocated either 5 or 10 ECTS credits, which equates to 125 (5 ECTS) and 250 (10 ECTS) hours of work for the learner, respectively. Learner activities and workload have been divided into four areas: (1) directed learning online, (2) dynamic interaction online, (3) assessment, and (4) independent learning. Given that courses are 14 weeks long, then an average learner will be engaged in ‘Directed Learning Online’, which involves reviewing pre-designed online content by themselves for up to 2.5 hours per week; in ‘Dynamic Interaction Online’ or ‘live’ interaction with their peers and/or the e-tutor for about 1.5 hour per week; and in preparation for ‘Assessment’ by themselves or with peers for 7 hours per week.  An additional 7 hours per week is allowed for ‘Independent Learning’ or reading beyond the course.
