Upon enrolment you will be assigned a an academic tutor who will be your primary point of contact throughout your course. This tutor may be any where in the world depending on the specific course you have registered for. Your tutor is dedicated to answering email enqueries as soon as possible, marking your assignments and advising you with regard to deadlines that has to be met. They are also on hand to provide guidance if you need a helping hand with any of the subject matter. Our tutors have all been carefully selected for their subject knowledge and ability to deliver professional qualification assistance via distance learning. Each tutor works as part of a wider specialist team so you always receive the support you need.
A distance learning tutor is an expert mentor or guide who is there to offer assistance and advice when needed. They let you set the pace at which you progress and won’t constantly be looking over your shoulder, but they will agree a timetable with you and target dates for assignments. The relationship developed between tutor and student in a distance learning environment varies a lot. Some people are happy to work mostly on their own with little help or guidance, whereas others regularly draw on their tutor for support. Our distance learning blueprint is ideal whichever end of the spectrum you’re at – just get in touch as and when you require assistance. .
You can speak to your tutor by email, phone or Skype when only a personal conversation will do. The Online Study Portals being used by EduNets and our affiliated international university partners often makes provision for a live communication portal that enables the tutor/lecturer to interact with the student in a “virtual classroom” environment. Around 80% of communication takes place via email and it is therefore important to set up your MS Outlook or other mail service in such a way that you keep a record of all correspondence. Also remember to check the Message System on the Online Learner Management System regularly for updates from your tutor/lecturer.
