Online and blended learning

When proposing new or revised programmes that include elements of distance learning (online or blended), the proposers are required to submit with the Stage 1 Proposal Form, a duly completed Distance Learning Programme Checklist  detailed as Appendix D

New study-units which involve blended or online modalities need to be sanctioned by the ESDEC sub-committee. In such instances, Appendix B or Appendix C (as appropriate) of the Distance and E-learning Policy must be submitted together with the study-unit approval form.


Appendix B should be completed when converting up to 25% of an existing face-to-face study-unit to an online modality.


Appendix C should be completed when converting an existing face-to-face study-unit or a blended study-unit to a fully online study-unit.


Appendix D should be submitted to APQRU along with the Stage 1 Proposal Form when proposing new distance learning programmes.
