Are these courses instructor-led live sessions or pre-recorded sessions?
NAFEMS e-learning classes provide live instructor-led sessions to allow attendees an opportunity to interact with the course instructor. Recordings of each session are also made available to all students afterwards. All NAFEMS e-Learning courses are accredited by NAFEMS and led by leading figures in the worldwide engineering analysis community.
What is the method of delivery for course material?
Each topic in the class is treated as a building block. The course instructor will provide interactive projects and will involve the students in the process via Q&A, email, the course discussion board and collaborative e-rooms.
What is the teacher to student ratio?
The maximum classroom size for an e-Learning course is 50 attendees. We do this to ensure a more interactive class environment.
Am I required to attend every session?
No. All sessions are recorded and available online for attendees.
Do any of the courses require particular software programs?
No. All courses are completely code independent. No software is required. It is recommended that you have a broadband connection and access to phone/microphone (VoIP access is available).
What should I expect to receive as an NAFEMS e-Learning registrant?
Full notes are provided for the students, together with personal passwords for e-learning backup material, bulletin board access, etc.
