How will you learn?
At Arden University, blended learning (otherwise known as mixed-mode learning, flipped classroom or hybrid learning), involves a combination of both on-campus and online learning. This essentially means that students get the best of both worlds: regular, face-to-face contact with a tutor combined with the flexibility to continue learning outside the classroom wherever and whenever you like with 24/7, multi-device, multi-media learning materials and a leading edge ‘virtual classroom’ study portal called ilearn. Our academic team have synthesised the most up to date and robust research on what helps people learn well, progress well and succeed. This underpins our entire approach to designing curricula and course content. Alongside traditional texts, we use podcasts, webinars (online seminars) and interactive knowledge-checks to keep you engaged, focused and motivated.
You will receive regular academic support from Arden’s expert tutors and your own student support coordinator for any administrative, technical or motivational help. You will cover key topics in each module, with assessments designed to help you showcase your strengths.
