Cd Courses
To start your course, you need to begin working on the course materials. On the main menu list you will find the ‘Course Materials’ button. When you click on this button, 3 more buttons will be displayed:
lessons, self assessment tests, and assignments. 
 
Problem Based Learning
Every PBL project is carefully designed by experts to expose you to the information and skills that we want you to learn. When assigned a project, you are given:
- A statement of the problem (eg. diseased animal; failing business; anorexia case study);
- Questions to consider when solving the problem;
- A framework for the time and effort you should spend on the project;
- Support from the school.

The problems that you will solve in your course will relate to what you are learning. They are problems that you might encounter when working that field, adapted to your level of study
 
Blended Learning
Blended learning is learning that is achieved by combining different modes of study. For example, a student might undertake part of a course by distance education and part by attending lectures in a classroom. Or, part of a course might be taken by traditional distance education, and part through an "e-learning mode" (ie. electronic learning). Electronic learning includes online courses, computer-based training on a CD, or computer-based training delivered via a bank of computers in a classroom.
