Distance Learning Model
Courses are delivered via distance learning mechanisms and course content is available to participants using web-based communication and educational platforms. Courses are offered to geographically-dispersed and time-constrained professionals with a modular approach, in which lectures are split into short online pre-recorded modules with supporting information provided relevant to each subject. Interactive “live” discussion sessions follow the course modules using a group audio, video, and document sharing system to facilitate problem solution, discussion, and interaction with the instructor and other students. Private social media sessions are opened for the students and instructors to interact at any time during the course. Access to software and programming tools is available through UConn’s virtual PC system. Students have remote access to a virtual desktop with installations of the software needed for a course (Matlab, Modelica, CAD tools, etc.).
