 Our Online (Video-Enhanced)  Study Mode

 In a move away from the traditional online courses and embracing recent developments in Computer-Mediated Distance Education (Crawford, 2003), HRODC Postgraduate Training Institute has introduced a Video-Enhanced Online delivery. This Online mode of delivery is revolutionary and, at the time of writing, is unique to our Institute.

 Our Video-Enhanced On-Line Mode is similar to being in a classroom – but virtually.

The tutor meets the individual or group, via Video and presents the course, in a similar manner to the classroom-based delivery;

Participants will see and interact with each other, and with the tutor.

They watch and discuss the various video cases and demonstration videos that form an integral part of our courses and programmes;

Their assessment is structured in a similar way to its classroom-based counterpart;

Each Postgraduate Diploma, Postgraduate Certificate, or Diploma - Postgraduate - Short Course usually starts on the 1st of each month, with the cut-off date being the 20th, for inclusion in the following month’s intake.

Despite taking twice as many days as its classroom-based rival, it amounts to the same number of Credit-Hours. For example, a 5-day (30 Credit Hours) classroom-based course will last 10 days, in Video-Enhanced On-Line mode. This calculation is based on 3 hours tuition per day, in line with the Institute’s required 30 Credit Hours;

Postgraduate Diploma Programme Deliveries last 20 weeks, while Postgraduate Certificate is of a 10-week duration, based on lectures of 3 hours per day, 6 days per week;

The cost of the Video-Enhanced On-Line mode is 67% of the classroom-based programme or course.

Like their classroom-based counterparts, our online Postgraduate Short Courses accumulate to a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma, within a 6-year period, Both Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma might also be gained through direct-entry. The table below provides an indication of Credit-Hours, and Award, with Credit-Value - where appropriate.

Cumulative Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate Courses

All short courses can accumulate to the required number of hours, for the Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate, over a six-year period, from the first registration and applies to both general and specialist groupings. In this regard, it is important to note that short courses vary in length, the minimum being 5 days (Diploma – Postgraduate) – equivalent to 30 Credit Hours, representing one credit, as is tabulated below.

 

On this basis, the definitive calculation on the Award requirement is based on the number of hours studied (aggregate credit-value), rather than merely the number of credits achieved. This approach is particularly useful when a student or delegate studies a mixture of courses of different credit-values.

 

For those delegates choosing the accumulative route, it is advisable that they study at least two credits be attempted per year, towards a Postgraduate Diploma, and one credit annually, for Postgraduate Certificate.   This target will ensure that the required number of Credit-Hours are achieved for each Award, within the stipulated time-frame.
