WATCH: Online learning contributes to student success

Posted on October 20, 2017

 

The University of Pretoria (UP) is committed to excellence in teaching and learning while improving student access, success and diversity. For two decades, UP has offered a blended approach to teaching and learning. Simply put, the University has adopted a delivery model that makes use of traditional learning tools such as classroom-based learning in combination with technology-supported platforms. This model has secured a place for UP as leader on the African continent in the use of a blended learning model. Since 2014, the University has significantly expanded the online component of its hybrid learning model. This move was enabled by the high level of maturity in use of the learning management system. In addition to boosting the overall use of online elements, the University boasts half a dozen online programmes, most of which have been running for a decade or more.

The Centre for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (CAAC) based in the Faculty of Humanities at UP, trains students who aspire to improve the lives of people with severe communication difficulties.
