Course Overview

As an increasingly preferred approach for delivering training and education, the HE sector is now responding to the need for qualifications that underpin the professional status of this accelerating sector. This MA Online and Digital Learning programme is an online programme that is intended to attract a global student body.

Knowledge and understanding is achieved through learning activities that emphasise students’ engagement with research-led resources and dialogue and with each other and their tutor. Resources are made available electronically from a range of different sources including: e-books, electronic journal articles, videos, images, numerical data, voice recordings, transcripts, web applications and web documents, available through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment.

With a growing emphasis on the digital economy, the use of online and digital technology in learning, eLearning is increasing due to advantages in cost, flexibility, access and relevance due to an increasingly digital and global workforce. It is widely reported that learners/trainees want to see more technology-driven learning with emphasis on social and collaborative learning approaches. Technology use for online, digital and/or distance learning is no longer a specialist educational activity but is increasingly becoming a mainstream activity for both universities, training organisations and HRM functions within organisations.


Your assessments are based on practice in designing OLD and piloting and implementing your ODL design. All assessments will be submitted online and will build and reflect on the collaborative activity within the modules. The tutor will provide formative and summative feedback and will be available by email, telephone and/ or Office 356 Skype for further clarification of feedback if requested by the student. Progression and award will comply with the standard University regulations for Masters programs. Arrangement for re-sit work will be provided through the University VLE.
