Teaching organization

Courses are entirely organized online to reach and facilitate the learning of an international audience.

In order to supervise the learning process, an individualized tutoring is set up by the course teachers, who thus ensure a personalized follow-up of the participants. This tutoring guarantees progress and supervision of the pedagogical activities required in each course.

Each course is the subject of a specific pedagogical organization adapted for online teaching. The teaching materials vary and use specific e-learning tools, in line with the teaching methods defined by teachers (collaborative, problem-based learning, etc.).
