ICDL Virtual Class

We should maximize learning, maximize human development A Flexible, Innovative & Interactive Distance Education
ICDL Candidates have access to distance learning via online classes accessed by logging onto the ICDL Virtual Classroom, a private interactive web platform housed on the ICDL website. The website platform includes all the course materials for which the student has registered, as well as interactive tools such as discussion forums and online chatting. This site also allows students to view instructional videos, which provide observational learning experiences such as role model assessment and interventions from experienced trainer. This flexible, innovative, long distance curriculum allows students to adjust their studies to their own daily schedule, an essential characteristic of a successful adult learning model.


Facilitating Candidates Interaction

The ICDL Candidates, and the learning model it supports, considers human interaction as one of the cornerstones of any learning process. Consequently, a priority of the ICDL Candidates is to facilitate and encourage ongoing candidate interaction with other students and trainer. Therefore, the knowledge-based online courses are combined with and require participation in several interactive opportunities, including: 

Online Forums
Weekly or Daily Class Discussions
Contact with Mentor Candidates

 

Each practice promotes candidate interaction with trainer, who supervise the clinical experience, as well as with other candidates taking the same course. Regular interaction with trainer is via email, with phone and/or video conferences strongly encouraged. The ICDL Candidates makes every effort to facilitate face-to-face interaction among students taking the same level courses and faculty when they live in the same region.

Although the ICDL Candidates does not provide on-site library facilities because of its online nature, registered candidates have access to selective publications through its on-line class. Students access the e-class through the ICDL Moodle Site allowing them to research relevant topics from their home computers. The e-library includes publications that deal with topics such as child development, infant mental health, psychology, neuroscience, and other relevant disciplines that complement course materials provided by the ICDL Graduate School
