How you learn online

This short film explains how online learning works.

Video transcript:

Choose an online degree with the University of Edinburgh, where all teaching and interaction with your tutors and classmates happens within our online learning platform. We’ve delivered online degrees to more than 7,000 students from all over the world – from Greenland to Australia! 

Our online learning platform hosts all your course materials and is accessible 24/7. Any live lectures will be recorded for you to watch at a time convenient to you, and may also be available as an audio file or transcript, giving you choice. 

Our online students lead busy lives, so flexible participation is key. Most exercises are asynchronous, enabling you to advance your academic knowledge at a time that suits you. Most of our online degrees are assessed through course-work. You’ll upload your assignments online,  and receive your marks and feedback there too. 

Group collaboration and learning from other professionals is what makes online learning so valuable. Our students tell us this is what they like the most – the opportunity to learn from others and to hear how they’ve applied what they’ve learnt within their own working environment, wherever they live in the world.
