Frequently Asked Questions

Since distance learning and online learning are connected to each other, it is confused with these two terms, but there is a definite difference between distance learning and online learning. The term distance learning stresses on the different geographical presence of the student from the educational institution in a learning process whereas online learning highlights the method of learning that is based on the Internet. Online learning is used as a mode of delivering the programme content for students who follow distance learning programmes.

We’ve adapted our teaching delivery to suit you. MANCOSA’s online programmes allow our student community to access resources or submit assignments by using an online portal. You will also receive instruction through pre-recorded lectures or by attending virtual classroom sessions. Far from being isolated, our growing online student community can interact with their faculty through email groups, discussion forums and organised online group activities.
