Delivery

The delivery of online courses to students in each diocese and school is achieved through the use of emerging internet technologies and existing telephone and broadband services. An experienced teacher will use this infrastructure to teach students from various other schools. Some lessons will involve being ‘online' together, ie. synchronous delivery. Students follow up these lessons by accessing the course material and resources and completing set work in their own time, ie. asynchronously. This asynchronous delivery can take place at school during the normal school day or at home in the student’s own time. However, in order to meet the course requirements and to cater for all schools and students it will be necessary to timetable the synchronous classes after school each week. This is similar to existing arrangements for English Extension, Mathematics and History that may already exist in some schools, although students would not need to remain at school in order to participate.

Courses will run subject to sufficient numbers choosing to enrol.
