MODE OF DELIVERY
The Open and Distance Learning programs of AIDE are delivered using information and communications technology combined with other approaches
For students requesting the print-based courses, textbooks and workbooks are sent or mailed to students along with other course documents. Supplementary audiovisual materials may be included as well. For maximum accessibility, most AIDE programs are print-based, but they still make use of the full array of supplementary media like audio-visual materials.
AIDE has engaged the services of a Learning Management System (LMS) provider or e-learning facilities (through the use of computers and technology in education) since 2017. Its LMS is powered by NEO Cypher Learning from 2017 to the early part of 2020. From June 2020, AIDE engaged the services of Quipper Learning Management System (LMS); a Japanese-based LMS provider. Recognizing the need to make our content more accessible to all its students, the Institute recently outlined a clear plan for delivering the main content of study programs via e-learning facilities. This is to also conform with the provisions of Open/Distance Learning (ODL) Act of the Philippines to provide more options to the students, thereby making the delivery of content more flexible and accessible to the ODL students.
- FACE TO FACE APPROACH
The conventional or face to face approach is use for courses on Culture and Arts. The actual validation of the skills acquired by the students enrolled in this course usually employs the traditional approach or face-to-face mode of delivery.
