WHAT IS DISTANCE LEARNING?
Distance learning is a way of learning remotely without being in
regular faceto-face contact with a teacher in the classroom. It can also
be defined as any educational or learning process/ system in which the
teacher/ instructor is separated geographically or in time from his or her
students; or in which students are separated from other students or
educational resources.
Contemporary distance learning is effected through the implementation
of computer and electronics technology to connect teacher and student
in either real or delayed time or on an as-needed basis. Content delivery
may be achieved through a variety of technologies being computers,
telephone, email, the internet, etc.
WHY DISTANCE LEARNING?
It increases access to learning opportunities
It accommodates multiple learning styles
It serves learners who are not likely to attend traditional classroom
instruction
It benefits students who lack the full confidence to participate in a
large classroom setting in front of other students
In some cases, Distance Learning can serve as many or more learners
per rand spent.

ASSESSMENT
The assessments for distance learning is in the form of two assignments.
The first covers 40% of the curriculum of the subject enrolled and the
second assignment can cover up to 100% of the curriculum.
Due to the fact that this is an “open book” assessment, your marks per
assignment will be weighted by 0.7 towards a final mark.
TRIMESTER MARKS
The trimester mark is determined by an assignment that is divided in two.
Students must obtain a trimester mark of 40% in order to be admitted
to the final examination. Students should diarise the due dates for Part A
and Part B as NO late submissions will be accepted.
TERM MARK
Your term mark will be calculated as follows:
Part A (Final Mark x 0.3) + Part B (Final mark x 0.7)
= 100%
A term mark of 40% or more should be obtained to qualify for the
examinations.
EXAMINATION
All examinations will be written at Goodwood Campus. Students who
cannot write the examination, for whatever reason will have to
re-register the following trimester. Students are expected to inform their
employer(s) of their registration and the dates of their final examination.
