Mission

The mission of distance learning is to provide undergraduate and postgraduate education to students who are unable to attend a conventional program of study. As a distance learning student, you have the flexibility to study in any location and in any time. Furthermore, a distance learner student has the ability to study in a flexible environment while being employed at the same time. Distance learning is offered exclusively in an online environment with the use of selected audio-visual media. Frederick University provides unlimited access to knowledge and high-quality education through the use of contemporary learning environments and high-end technology.

Mode of Delivery

Distance Learning programs at Frederick University do not require physical presence, with the exception of final examinations. This means that students have the possibility to study from their place of preference at the time of day and pace that consider most suitable for them. Delivery of material is given via electronic means, and specifically, the Learning Management Platform (LMS). The LMS tool is central to distance learning studies and students will be given appropriate assistance and support to ensure that they can use it effectively. Through the LMS students: 1) gain access to the various directed learning material, such as bibliography, presentations, teleconferences, 2) be informed of and manage assessment requirements, the deadlines and submission mechanisms, and 3) be provided with communication mechanisms, both synchronous and asynchronous, with their instructors, as well as fellow students.

Learning Management System – LMS

The e-learning platform is the most important tool for instructors and students registered in distance learning programmes. Both instructors and students have access to this platform as it is the main means of delivering material/content. The e-learning platform is also the primary method of communication and collaboration between instructors and students. Specifically, it is used for uploading and delivering material (readings, bibliographic sources, narrated presentations, annotated presentations, course notes) or any other supporting material (Web page links, videos, etc.). The platform also allows for synchronous and/or asynchronous communication and collaboration (discussion forums, chat rooms, wikis) between instructors and students and enables students to submit their work electronically (see relevant User Guide). The various tools embedded in the platform provide numerous capabilities for technology use within the teaching and learning process.
