SWPS uses the e-learning platform to enhance the quality of programmes offered to students. The courses offered are divided into two categories:
Web enhanced courses, where students have access to the materials published by their tutors (PowerPoint slides from lectures, reading lists, additional reading materials) and have an opportunity to interact with their tutors and fellow students using discussion fora and communicators.
Blended or online courses, where a part or the whole of the teaching-learning process takes place online. In these courses, students are presented with educational materials in an involving way and then are offered an opportunity to practise the knowledge and skills in various interactive tasks, done individually and / or in groups. During their work, students interact with fellow students and teachers using tolls such as wikis and workshops.
