Hybrid learning is a feature of the teaching model in the EMS Faculty. Students attend lectures, practical sessions and tutorials, but part of the learning is dependent on access to the online learning management system, known at the University as clickUP. Pre-reading and pre-testing as well as electronic assessments at different levels are offered. To ensure that students can successfully engage, training in the use of clickUP is offered to undergraduate students through the AIM modules during their first year of study, while postgraduate students are trained by the Department for Education Innovation. Students gain access to clickUP through the student online portal and can also use the portal to perform administrative functions. Any mobile device, such as an internet-enabled cell phone, can be used to access clickUP. The University is aware that not all students own the latest technology and a system is in place for students to buy their own devices at very competitive rates. In addition, more than 6000 computers are available in computer laboratories across all campuses and within residences for student use, should they not own the required technology. Wi-Fi hot spots are provided across all campuses for use by students with their own devices and data on campus, is provided free of charge. All students are provided with a Google e-mail address and this address is used by the EMS Faculty for communication on academic and administrative matters.
