eLearning

Coming soon

The AAA School of Advertising is thrilled to announce a new and exciting undertaking.

It is our hope that during the course of , we will finalise the AAA eLearning

(or blended learning) programme. Its purpose will be to create more rewarding

learning and teaching experiences.

what sets it apart?

The eLearning programme differs from traditional forms of education in that it combines the benefits of face-to-face teachings with online learning. As lecturers, we understand that many students feel more comfortable offering opinions and theorising in an environment where they are simply a name and not a face.

Through eLearning, students can log into online classes from anywhere, access course material (read/watch/listen to) at any time and enjoy a direct line to their lecturers.
