What is Blended Learning?
DBS offers fully-blended learning through a combination of the following modes:
Blended Learning allows for the most appropriate mode of delivery to be applied to different parts of the syllabus. Blended Learning Programmes on average are split out to 40% Face to Face Classroom Tuition, 30% Live Online and 30% OnDemand Learning but this does vary.
What is Face to Face / Classroom Tuition?
The lecturer and students attend class on-site on DBS campus. This mode appears on timetables. It involves guided learning at a specific location and time.
What is Live Online (LOL) Tuition?
The lecturer and students are online at the same time in a Zoom room or digital communication platform. These sessions are typically used for workshops and facilitated discussions on topics and where possible are recorded. This mode appears on timetables. It involves guided learning online at a specific time.
What is OnDemand Learning?
OnDemand Learning is where the lecturer has prepared content or activities that the student accesses online and works through at their own pace. This content is not on a student’s timetable. However, OnDemand content is often connected to Face to Face or Live Online sessions and should be completed in advance of those classes. Some live sessions are independent of OnDemand content but some will be dependent upon the student having been through the OnDemand content.
