FAQs -Frequently Asked Questions by interested Learning Providers

Q. How long does a course have to be?

A. It's up to you. There is no restriction as to the course length or amount of materials. Have a look at the courses offered in TeLP1 to get an idea.

Q. Does the course have to be ALL online?

A. No, you can develop part of a course online, while delivering the rest face-to-face; or you can develop a course that learners access all online.

Q. Who owns the copyright for the developed courses?

A. The Learning Provider. This is reinforced by the fact that when you enter your materials, you need to specify the author and the publisher of the course.

Q. Is The eLearning Place a Managed Learning Environment? Will it keep assessment scores?

A. Yes, scores from assessments may be stored centrally and you will be able to track the progress of your students through the administration function.

Q. At the end of the project, will the materials continue to be stored on Connect's server?

A. Yes. CONNECT will act as an ASP (Application Service Provider) for all courses run through The eLearning Place, but you can take your own course and place it on your own server and intranet or on a CD if you wish. However, you will not be able to use the interactive elements that are provided by The eLearning Place (e.g. chat, message board) or the user administration system (e.g. tracking students' progress) as they are dynamically generated from the database behind the course.
