2. HOW DO WE COMMUNICATE AS A DISTANCE LEARNING STUDENT ?

During the programme we also organize project courses. We try to make groups heterogeneous with people from all over the world. All communication is online, mostly using the digital learning environment called Blackboard which has a discussion board per course, via Google Hangouts or sometimes using Skype. You will be able to enter Blackboard after registration and have access to courses and content materials. In order to follow this master programme by distance, you need to have (access to) good internet connection and be in use of a computer/laptop with camera and microphone working! We experience that it is too difficult to study via distance learning when internet connections are not sufficient. You need to be able to stream web lectures and upload homework, projects, do quizzes online and participate in contact moments via Google Hangouts. This is the student’s own responsibility. A programme on a distance doesn't mean you have to do everything on your own. Of course professors and teaching assistants will be available for answering your questions, give you feedback and advice.
