The CAWEB Master's distance learning program
Who the program is for
Distance learning is intended for students who wish to work and study at the same time, for those who wish to pursue an apprenticeship outside Strasbourg, but also for people who are returning to school or residing abroad, regardless of their status.
Studying by distance learning is only possible for the second year of the program.
The tools of the distance learning program
Students, teachers and the coordinator communicate through the distance learning platform’s interface (Moodle).
This platform consists of a virtual environment for the work-study program. All the information, organization, communication and sharing tools are accessible via the web browser. The platform is therefore available at any time and from any computer with internet access. Synchronised online meetings are conducted using Adobe Connect web conferencing software, also accessible via a web browser.
How does it work?
The program is composed of distance seminars and three three-day meetings spread over the year. They aim to build relationships between the students and take some of the exams. They take place at the University of Strasbourg and are an integral part of the training. The presence of apprentices is mandatory. Although attending all meetings is recommended, other students are only required to attend two of them to take their exams (first session in March and June, second session in September).
The distance learning option is composed of a series of seminars in which students complete learning objectives related to their work placement, and work on case studies. An online course is provided for each seminar aiming to study these areas. The seminars consist of real-time meetings between the students and the tutor as well as having an independent learning component, including individual research and writing, necessary to effective learning.
A tutor is assigned to each seminar. Their role is not to simply pass on knowledge but to mentor and support groups doing the work-study program. He guides students in their research process, decision-making and work approach.
Students will also be mentored throughout the year by a coordinator who should be contacted in case of technical problems, difficulties or for any further information regarding the program. In close cooperation with the director of studies, his/her role is to register course members and staff in the program’s system and to set exam dates. He/She is also responsible for verifying students and staff attendance.
