Teaching learners online, through distance/blended learning (DL)
Module 3 Specialism on Oline/Blended Learning
(A certificate for Module 3, part of the Cambridge DELTA Diploma)
A course specifically addressed to the needs DELTA candidates for Module 3 who wish to follow this Specialism and work on educational technology and online learning in ELT. At the end of this course, participants will be supported in writing their assignment; successful candidates will be awarded a DELTA Module 3 Certificate.
If you are eligible to attend a Cambridge DELTA Course you may wish to take this option, as completion of this and submission of a Case Study will also give you a Cambridge Module 3 Certificate which is part of the Cambridge DELTA Diploma.
You can download the relevant Cambridge documents which list all the specialisms and which will help you in your choice of topic and focus from the box below;
The courses will be delivered via Moodle, asynchronously, which means that you will be able to log in and complete your coursework whenever you can. There is no set timetable for this although it is expected that you will need to put in a total of of at least 50-60 hours of individual work to complete tasks set by your course leader and more hours after the end of the course to research and write up your Module 3 extended assignment.
Module 3 Assignments
Before the end of the course, candidates are required to submit a proposal in writing about their assignment topic focus. Once their tutor has approved of the topic proposed, candidates are expected to write it and submit drafts to their tutor for commenting before they finalize their assignment.
Assignments for Module 3 are 4,500 words in length and must be submitted to the centre in their final draft form before the end of May or November each year in electronic form.
The centre uploads assignments to the Cambridge ESOL website.
No special equipment is necessary to follow the course on Moodle but a fast internet connection and a headset would be an advantage – a webcam is not obligatory but enhances contact amongst participants and course tutor.
Candidates for this specialism will be given access to a range of online journals, articles, videos and other resources, but they should also be prepared to purchase some books themselves, especially if they do not have access to the CELT Athens library.
Once you have applied and paid your tuition fees, you will be registered and given a course key to enter the Moodle course website and follow your course using your user name and password.
The course is also open to experienced teachers who do not wish to submit a Module 3 assignment or design the required syllabus which forms part of the DELTA Module 3 assignment but who wish to learn more about online/blended learning.
We accept payments via PayPal, a secure online payment system.
After the end of the course, DELTA Module 3 candidates are expected to research, draft and submit their Extended Assignment to CELT Athens for the June or the December session.
