The didactic approach of the International Telematic University UNINETTUNO does not follow a traditional semester plan. Instead, it unfolds as teaching materials are presented. All of the teaching activities of the Degree Courses at the International Telematic University UNINETTUNO are delivered in modules of a variable duration based on the academic credits of the given course. These are repeated four times each academic year.
Right by your side, to guide you along your study path, there will be two professional figures:
- the Mentor, who is concerned with making you feel at home and offering support for the duration of your degree course. Your mentor will listen to your needs and guarantee optimum conditions for the learning process;
- the Tutor, specific for each teaching subject, has the task of facilitating your learning process and communication on the web. Your tutor will provide you with the necessary instruments in order to get the most out of your studies, guiding you up to the final exam.
For each teaching subject the students are divided into classes on the basis of individual profiles that are the result of the Entrance Questionnaire that students fill out at the moment of enrolment. A tutor is assigned to each class, which can contain up to 30 students. This applies to all of the Faculties, with the exception of the Degree Course of the Engineering Faculty where the classes can contain a maximum of 20 students.
During the period of time in which teaching is carried out, your tutor will follow your progress as the didactic activity unfolds, furnishing you with ad hoc learning materials and interacting with you through the available systems of communication. These you will find on the Tutor Page of the Didactic Cyberspace.
To earn 1 academic credit,remember that according to the rules currently in effect one must carry out 25 hours of activity. These are broken down as follows:
- 5 hours of videolessons that you will find in digitalized format in the Video Library of the Didactic Cyberspace; these video lessons will take 10 hours of your time, as we think it is appropriate that you follow each lesson twice;
- 10 hours of individual study on texts and exercises that you will find in the Media Library and the Virtual Laboratory of the Didactic Cyberspace;
- 5 hours of activity assisted by the Tutor.
For example, if a teaching subject comprises 25 video-lessons (of 1 hour each), you will earn 5 academic credits through:
- 50 total hours of viewing of the video lessons (2 hours for each video lesson);
- 50 hours of individual study;
- 25 hours of activity assisted by the Tutor.
When the teaching subject has been persented in its entirety, exam sessions will be organized.
