Virtual Learning Environment
One of the key lessons learnt by higher education organizations during COVID pandemic is that learning and teaching methods need to quickly adapt to changing and challenging circumstances to provide uninterrupted education to students. CIRP offers it’s students a modern Virtual Learning Platform where delivery of lectures and access to learning resources could take place remotely. While delivery of lectures through the VLE is mainly for online students, on campus students also have access to learning resources and study material via VLE. And during times where on campus lectures cannot take place, they too could engage in lectures via VLE without interrupting and prolonging their programs
