Once their Grade Learningplatform was set up, Distansinstitutet began enlisting subject experts to put together courses using the built-in authoring tool Composer. Emphasis was placed on learner experience – the courses needed to be easy to navigate and contain the right amount of information. Today, the course content ranges from video and audio to different kinds of interactive exercises.
– “Because our courses are executed without any classroom instruction, we incorporate a lot of exercises. This enables us to give dynamic feedback as a part of the learning process. We are able to ensure that the participant has have obtained the knowledge and been able to practice and review important material,” Marcus explains.
After completing a course, participants receive a diploma. They also have the chance to become certified through different professional tests, assessed by Distansinstitutet in collaboration with relevant subject experts. The certification is proof that the participant has the skills to apply that knowledge day to day.
