The didactic process, carried out via Internet with the use of any client device, is fully flexible in terms of time and place, eliminating requirement of participants' physical presence and removing accessibility barriers (such as geographic or time zone barriers).
After signing-up for a chosen EITCA/EITC programme participants acquire access to personalized e-learning environment featuring asynchronous learning methodology, without any timing requirements.
EITC/EITCA e-learning didactics highlights:
The EITC/EITCA interactive didactic process on the e-learning platform includes an unlimited availability of expert consultations. On-line consultancy can be initiated at any time by the participant who requires assistance.
Depending on the needs of the participant the consultancy can be limited to answering to the specific questions or solving problems associated with the didactic programme. It can be also extended to tutorials and advices, up to individual didactic approach based on the progress of the participant. Consultancies are based on the e-learning platform communication system as well as individual e-mail contact and if required real-time chat with experts.
The e-learning platform processes statistics of all learning activities of the participant during didactic programme implemenation and thus allows consulting experts to individualize their approach in proper assisting of the participant learning needs. Detailed activity reports are prepared automatically by the platform and presented to the consulting experts so they can know which parts of the programme were most problematic and require focus. The model of individual tutoring and coaching depending on the learning needs of participants is based upon similar aproaches in the leading universities and is characterized by increasing learning effectiveness additionally motivating participants to increased effort in learning when they decide to initiate consultancy assistance.
The on-line didactics is always programmed into EITC courses which end in fully remote EITC examination conducted via Internet, without the need of physical presence at examination center. The examination has a form of a closed test, including 15 random multiple-choice test questions on the given EITC course content. This remote test is taken by the participant within the e-learning platform (where the participant is presented with the interactive test which implements random choice of test questions, the ability to return to answered or unanswered questions and time limitation which is 45 minutes). The EITC examination passing score is 60% positive answers but failure in achieving this limit enables participant to retake the exam without additional fees (there are 2 free retake attempts, after which further examination retakes require a payment fee amounting to 20 Euro to be processed). Participant can retake a passed test to improve the score for better presentation on the certification.
Completion of all EITC exams which constitute an EITCA certification results in issuing to the participant the relevant EITCA Academy certification, together with all included EITC certificates. There are no additional EITCA Academy examinations (the examinations are only assigned to EITC courses, passing each of them results with an EITC certification issuing, while the EITCA Academy certification is only issued after passing a relevant group of EITC examinations). The scores presented on the EITCA Academy certification are the scores of all EITC certifications comprising a certain EITCA Academy. All the procedures are implented fully remotely in Brussels and the ceritificate is sent to the participant, while the digital certification is permamently stored in the EITCI validation service.
Certification process along with all the examinations is conducted fully remotely on-line within a modern e-learning platform in an asynchronous mode. Thanks to flexibly of organized e-learning didactic process along with all the examinations carried out remotely and asynchronously via Internet (allowing highest flexibility in time with participant self organizing his learning activity at his / her convenience), physical presence of the participant is not necessary, therefore many barriers are eliminated.
The EITCA Academy and EITC certifications are compatible with the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (in short ECTS). If you study on the European university (not necessarily in the EU but in the country participating in the ECTS standard) you can account EITCA Academy or EITC courses completion for your ongoing undergraduate or postgraduate studies programme within a national-level higher education system. This is possible as the EITCA Academy and EITC certifications are ECTS standard compatibile, and have assigned ECTS scores according to the standard specification. Nevertheless it is still a decision on the side of the university administration to accept or decline accounting of completion of a certain EITC certification course in your academic studies programme (such inquiry should be made to the Dean office along with the relevcant EITC/EITCA certifications and their supplements). The EITC and EITCA certifications are provided with the detailed programme supplements that will allow for a proper consideration of contentwise equivalence with a relevant university course or the corresponding ammount of qualifications and competencies even by the universities in the countries which are not participating in the ECTS system.
EITCA Academies consist of groups of individual EITC Certification programmes, each of those being assigned with the defined number of the ECTS credits, awarded after obtaining the Certification. The EITC/EITCA percantage based grading scale is also fully compatible with the ECTS grading scale, thus supporting acceptance of external learning results. The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) serves as a EU based standard for comparing the academic study attainment and performance of students of higher education across the European Union and other European countries seeking to participate in the ECTS standard. For successfully completed courses relevant numbers of ECTS credits are awarded. The ECTS credits serve as a reference to compare complexity of courses in different higher educational institutions and by agreements between these institutions to acknowledge the courses completed in different institutions on the basis of ECTS credits support international exchange of EU students and studying abroad. It should be noted that many countries have similar standards, which can easily account ECTS credits too. Gaining ECTS credits in EITC/EITCA programme will certainly add-up positively to your academic conduct at any university.
