Q. What is an online course?
A An online course is similar to classroom courses, except that the delivery of learning and interaction with students and instructors will be through a learning management system, online presentations, or assignments. Instructors lead discussions and are available for feedback and questions.
Q. Why should I do an online course?
An online course serves as a refresher and the added certification helps you get ahead in your career. It is comparable to a real, live educational experience, sometimes better. You should do it if you want expertise but have time limitations; you cannot attend classes due to job commitments; cannot do self-study as that would take more time; and cannot afford to enrol for classroom courses. Online courses are often less expensive and offer you flexibility as you can log in from anywhere and it allows you to learn at your own pace.
Q. Do I need to attend all the online classes for passing the course?
A We suggest you do. Classes help in understanding the concepts which you may take hours to understand if you study yourself. The more classes you attend, the more clarity of concepts you will get. Since online courses are targeted at people who are working or cannot attend regular classes, there are no minimum attendance criteria as such. [The recorded sessions so conducted are, however, available at LMS for review and make-up in future]
