The benefits of a real-world campus plus the benefits of studying online
Study at our Online campus
Our Online Campus is academically demanding and requires ongoing commitment. We really want you to succeed and even though you are studying online we don’t want you to feel alone. You will receive ongoing support from your online peers and your educator and mentors, and be immersed in a supportive online learning community that will lay a foundation for community-building and collaboration.
What is expected of me during the term?
You will engage with our custom-made video content, academic readings and take part in structured weekly learning activities (like discussions, presentations, group work, and/or short exercises, for example), as well as attend live webinars (where applicable). All of these will form part of an engagement grade for each module.
Why study Online with SACAP?
Range of Online Courses
A dynamic medium. Engaging content
We make use of engaging, quality rich learning materials (such as video and academic reading) to encourage students to combine theory with their immediate environments to absorb, analyse, reflect on and internalise the requisite knowledge and skills.
Interactive learning. Expert educators
Our online programmes are highly interactive. The learning journey is facilitated by one of SACAP’s educators who activates and guides the process from beginning to end. This keeps the momentum going and the students actively involved.
An individual journey. Group support
SACAP’s online learning programmes contain structured weekly learning activities that are designed to teach and foster the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience. Students are supported and taught by an educator, as well as other dedicated student support services, every step of the way.
A structured process. A flexible pace
Even though modules are structured with deadlines, there is a level of autonomy to determine the pace at which students participate. A significant strength of online learning is that students can take time to reflect on and provide a meaningful contribution to a discussion – free from the pressure of having to respond immediately, as is typical in a classroom setting.
Make your voice heard. Grow the learning community
We’ve made sure that our online students never feel as though they’re working in isolation. They’re not only encouraged to engage with the content and learning materials but also to collaborate and build community online. SACAP believes that learning is a social activity and that the more you interact with each other, the more you’ll learn.
There are 2 formal assessments per online module. They are set to specifically assess students’ understanding of the theory, and their ability to identify and apply knowledge, skills and capabilities to simulated and real-life situations.
In addition to the formal assessments, student engagement is assessed through the quality of their contributions to weekly learning activities.
Even though our students are studying online, they won’t be alone. SACAP provides high levels of support.
