Internet Studies – Distance Learning – DLS (Distance Learning System) allows you to study from home based on the principle of tracking recorded lessons and self-testing. In addition to monitoring the teaching and taking the tests and exams, the student is constantly in contact with professors, assistants and colleagues for the purpose of consulting.
DLS is realized through various forms of teaching: public broadcasting of a time-planned teaching event (live broadcasting of lectures or discussions of teachers / experts), lectures in PDF format and multimedia teaching materials available on the server 24h, consultations with professors via the Internet for informal learning through discussions, internet tests – colloquiums and limited duration exams. The final exam is organized during the examination period at the headquarters of the faculty.
It requires a computer, an Internet connection, a phone, an active e‑mail account, a Skype account, a microphone, a camera. Registration is done during the first activation of the MEF Profile. The account is active with a simple registration with adequate data (unique student DLS code, e‑mail, name and surname). MEF technical support is available for any kind of issues and possible problems.
Students who opt for a distance learning system have the opportunity to follow teaching lessons via their mobile devices (mobile phone, tablet, laptop), and in the best way they organize their work day by adjusting them with their obligations, activities or employment. A flexible and functional DLS system gives a completely new dimension to the education system. Progressive technological advancement has made it possible for the education system to adapt to new methods by putting the student and his time in the spotlight.
Students most often express their satisfaction in their comments for transforming the traditional way of learning into a new, modern learning system. They are happy because DLS provides the opportunity for ambitious and versatile young people not to be deprived of attendance classes who are not able to physically attend.
Some of DLS students' comments are:
Within the DLS system, the student has a personal profile that gives him the opportunity to communicate with the student service, colleagues, assistants and professors. On enrollment, the student obtains a unique code which, with other personal data, opens a personal MEF profile on the DLS. In addition to being able to communicate and store unread messages while the student was not active on the profile, the Profile is also of the information type. The student has an insight into the average grade, the number of exams passed and not passed, the alarm system for appointments in the forthcoming examination period, possible unpaid tuition fees, access to all lectures 24 hours a day all days of the year.
When starting with the distance learning process, the student has at his disposal the ability to access lectures for 24 hours and listen to them several times at a time when his obligations allow him. In addition to the recorded lectures, the DLS platform is available to download teaching materials in PDF format. The electronic form of textual content contains carefully selected information and data, as well as current Internet links that will help you to master the necessary material. Theoretical teaching is completed with practical tasks. Networking on the software platform Virtual enterprise enables the student to exchange knowledge and skills with colleagues through practical problem solving in a real company. After certain material, tests on the Internet that are time-limited are solved. The conceptualized regular assessment of knowledge enables the professor to actively monitor the progress of each individual student on the path of acquiring qualifications in a professional field. Practical works (essays, seminars, projects) are sent electronically to the professor for insight, who, with corrections and advice, evaluates the work and then returns the student to insight. All knowledge tests are documented and archived under the student's code and are available for inspection at the faculty premises.
The DLS coordinator is available to students for all necessary information and advice. Professors, and assistants and associates in teaching are available for all consultations related to subjects. The student has the absolute freedom to contact the professional staff of the Faculty by email, telephone or Skype. The deadline for answering is a maximum of 24h. Highly professional professors with their expert knowledge and skills as well as pedagogical way of working provide safe support to students.
MEF has an expert advisory team that specializes in directing young undecided potentials. If you are in doubt about the choice of the program's curriculum, the expert counselor of the psychologist, on the basis of standardized tests for directing education, professional orientation and professional development, offers the opportunity to find the right choice.
