DISTANCE LEARNING AT STADIO
The rapid technological advances made over the past decade have transformed distance learning into an exciting study option for many students, both in South Africa and internationally. STADIO’s distance learning programmes offer students excellent, quality education, without the need to attend venue-based classes.
The distance learning teaching strategy differs somewhat between programmes, based on the subject matter and nature of the programme. Access your specific programme’s information sheet to find out more about the structure of the programme, as well as the nature of distance learning delivery.
All distance learning students will receive either printed study materials or electronic materials depending on their preference. Throughout the learning journey, academic support is only a click away. Questions related to the study material may be asked in the classroom environment where the lecturer will provide guidance. Distance learning students have easy access to the online library facilities, as well as access to online databases and an eBook library. Furthermore, distance students also have access to a range of other services in support of both academic success and general wellness.
WHO SHOULD CONSIDER DISTANCE LEARNING?
Distance learning is suited to students who want to study from wherever they are, without having to attend classes in person at a venue. Other than the requirement to submit assessment tasks on time, distance learning offers the student flexibility to plan his/her own study schedule. This option is also ideal for working adults, mature learners, or for school-leavers who enjoy learning at their own pace, live distantly from STADIO’s campuses, or who have other commitments to attend to during the day. Even though learning happens at a distance, the student still has access to expert lecturers, up-to-date study material and peer engagement, via the virtual learning environment.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM STADIO
You will have access to a range of resources and facilities online, designed to support not only your learning journey, but also your social and emotional wellbeing. STADIO will provide support towards student success at each step of the learning process and you will always have access to assistance to support your academic success and well-being.
WHAT STADIO WILL EXPECT FROM YOU
Studying via distance learning is largely enabled through technology. You need access to a computer, as well as to the internet and connectivity to access and submit your assessments and other academic tasks more conveniently. STADIO believes that the key to academic success is motivation and high engagement. You will be expected to submit your assessment tasks on time and to take part in the learning activities, designed to assist your learning journey. Furthermore, STADIO expects all students to act in accordance with the principles of the Student Code of Conduct and institutional values at all times, whether on campus or online.
