Recognition of credits
Credit transfer and recognition of prior learning (RPL) arising from previous professional experiences or courses of study made by the candidate is an assessment process carried out directly by universities or organizations of certification of skills.
The credit is the value assigned for recognition of equivalence between academic subjects and courses and/or studies, professional qualifications and previous work experiences.
The possession of credits reduces the time to devote to learning on the part of the applicant required for achieving a qualification.
The universities, which International Studies Ltd is in partnership with, offer a free evaluation of credits.
Decisions concerning the recognition of credits also take into account the probability on the part of the applicant to reach successfully the end of the studies and grant impartiality throughout the qualification process.
Consistency, fairness and transparency of the evaluation activities are ensured by agencies adopt a systematic approach made possible by policies and procedures governing its implementation.
The e-learning area of International Studies Ltd was developed using Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment), computer platform designed to provide educators, administrators and teachers a single reliable, safe and integrated system to create personalized learning environments.
Moodle has been developed by a working group coordinated by Moodle HQ, an Australian company consisting of 30 programmers, financed by a network of 60 partners (international service company): a simple interface, drag-and-drop components and well documented resources along with continuous updates about its usability make Moodle platform easy to use.
Our e-learning area allows educators, administrators and teachers to communicate in real time through chat asynchronously on the forums. Students can also perform exercises or simulations and collaborate with teachers and other students to develop projects, facilitating both shared learning and the creation of working groups.
Every subject in the curriculum established by the universities with which we are in partnership is available on this platform for use by teachers in the delivery of teaching activities.
