E-Campus (e-learning platform)

EENI - Business School.

e-Campus for Doctorates (DIB) and Masters (MIB)

Study Methodology

The e-Campus developed by EENI is an e-learning platform with the objective to compliment the materials delivered and to provide support to the students throughout the duration of their studies. In the e-campus, the student can ask questions, view articles of interest, participate in discussion forums as well as meet other students (networking).

When a student is registered for a course, diploma or master; they will receive by e- mail the access codes to the virtual campus.

The e-Campus is organized into three main areas:

eCampus

My Courses. Shows the subjects (learning units) that the student is enrolled. Each course/subject (learning units) consists of:

a) EENI Unit: all the course materials and activities of this subject provided by EENI.

b) EENI ALUMNI (Community for networking). In this area students can interact, share information, discuss International Business topics or do networking. This part is open at the time, i.e. any EENI student can participate in this part, once finished their studies. Would be like lifelong learning/continuous education classroom.

Each course is organized in the following way:

Course Materials. These are the materials that the student needs to download from the e-campus to study. It is not necessary to be connected to the Internet to study (the instructional materials are on the student's hard disk). The student can print all materials.

An example of Incoterms course materials:

Complementary Articles. This section contains articles and resources related to the issues discussed on the subject. These articles are provided to complement and provide a further understanding of what has been covered in the subject. Reading these articles is obligatory. Sometimes a Professor can initiate a discussion topic relating to an article. For example:

Student questions (Ask the Tutor).

Ask the Professor

Students can post a private message to their teacher and receive the response in the same way.

Please feel free to ask your questions (and about what support Professors can offer). Remember that a good relationship with your Professors can be an invaluable source of support.

Be clear and concise writing up your question. Put in a context that Professors can understand.

Normally the term of the answer is between 24 and 48 hours; nevertheless, if the question is complex, the Professor can need more time to respond. Also consider the time differences between countries, local holidays, in the case of delay.

Questions

Send exercises. This is the section where students send their exercises that are to be evaluated by the teacher. It is possible that the teacher may consider that the student has not reached the minimum level to pass the unit. In this case, the teacher will guide the student so that the material is reviewed and that the exercises are re-done. The important thing is to learn!

Students should expect to dedicate a minimum of 12 hours per week working on lessons and assignments.

The course assessment is based on
- Successful completion of exercises
- Student's participation (e-campus forums, questions, activities...)
- Thesis (only for master's degrees).

1- Create a Word document and write all the answers to all the exercises of the subject.
2- Upload the document to the e-campus using this form:

Send Exercise

The system will upload your document to e-Campus server. E-Campus will send an email to Professors. Normally Professors need one week to evaluate the exercise. When Professor assessed your exercise, you will receive an email with your score and commentaries (if Professor will consider necessary).

Notes

The purpose of these exercises is for the student to work on practical cases and try to solve them efficiently. These exercises are obligatory.

The e-Campus interface is available in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian, or Arabic. The e-Campus has over 5,000 items of content online in various languages. Students can access to all these multilingual contents.

Other e-Campus modules.

The Professors and students edit this section and its purpose is to inform the student of upcoming events which can take place either on the e-campus or at a physical venue. This subsection is very dynamic as it displays up-to-date information on what is happening in the e-campus itself and other events related to the courses.
- Online Chats. On certain days your Professors will be available for consultations (check the "E-campus events" for exact dates). To make the planning of consultations more effective; it is essential that you confirm to your Professor your wish to participate in a chat at least twenty-four hours before the event. Also, you can contact by chat with other students. Also; we recommend to use Yahoo Messenger.
