Eagmark’s online courses combine e-learning with hands-on and shared real-world learning experiences and opportunities using a three-pronged approach:

  1. Students learn independently through the Eagmark Online Learning Campus (OLC)
  2. Faculty/tutors and students work collaboratively through the Eagmark OLC to share information and exchange knowledge.
  3. Students do remote practical assignments and record their work with a mobile device and upload the photos or video as evidence on the Eagmark OLC.

The Eagmark OLC includes advanced tools and functionalities that enable a full suite of blended learning environment. The OLC delivers this functionality through powerful, secure and personalized learning experiences.

Each course cohort is allocated a tutor who oversees the progress of the students. The tutors ensure regular communication and provide guidance as appropriate.
