The e-Learning programs are being implemented via a user friendly software (educational platform) adjusted to the Distance Learning Principles. The educational platform on use is a portal through which the electronic classrooms are being managed and through which the users can have access in them. Each e-classroom is similar to a traditional teaching classroom. The user can access the e-classroom with his personal code number and within it he can browse the teaching material, the news, the e-mail account and the assessment tests. The educational material for each program is being gradually disposed, per teaching unit, through the electronic classrooms. During the enrollment of each program the user can find in a relevant link the necessary for the smooth implementation of the educational process news/ announcements, such as:

  • The Timetable for the submission of the tests, which includes the dates for the disposal of the teaching units and the deadlines for the taking of the relevant tests,
  • The Study Guide per teaching unit, which assists the trainee in the better management of his study,
  • The Final Paper, which concerns the whole of the teaching material.

After the completion of the study of each teaching unit, the trainee must electronically take and submit the corresponding test -according to the announced by his tutor timetable. The tests entail list matching questions, multiple choice questions, and true / false questions or upload questions in which the trainee must write down and attach his answer. In parallel, there is provided full educational support since the trainee can address his appointed tutor electronically, through an integrated in the platform online communication system, in case he has lesson and test related questions. Through the communication system, the trainee can also address the Secretariat or the Technical Support services. Finally, there is also provided access to a specially configured electronic library, from which the trainee can download and print all the related to the program e-books, as well as additional support educational material for his papers and tests.
