The distance course will be given over an eight (8) week period on the ITUdistance education platform. Each week, tutors will assist participants entering the Web to: a)access the course session, b) read support materials, c) download the assigned exercises or activities, d) complete or develop the activity or exercise each week and e) post their responses for the tutors to examine, assess and make clarifications as required. In addition, ona weekly basis the tutors will return to the group a consolidated analysis of their responses aswell as individual clarifications and corrections as needed. The evaluation process will bebased on Internet on-line exams and study projects on the Modules in progress.
