Economics, digital marketing, aviation management and computer games are the e-learning courses currently offered by UITM.
The UITM E-learning section has made them available on the platform operated by the Ministry of Education and Science. In the previous edition, UITM courses were used by over 2,000 registered users and 789 certificates were issued.
MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) are e-learning courses open to an unlimited number of participants, available through the website. Until recently, this type of course was only available in English. Last year, the Ministry of Education and Science launched the NAVOICA platform, where universities and educational institutions can offer e-learning courses.
Thanks to the Navoica internet platform, everyone who wants to learn – regardless of age and place of residence, can expand their knowledge. All on-line courses are free of charge and the only thing you need to do is log in to participate. The University of Information Technology and Management has joined the group of universities by launching courses in the areas in which it specializes. After completing the course and meeting the credit conditions, course participants receive a free certificate signed by our university – says Dr. Joanna Wójcik, Head of the E-learning Section.
So far, the courses offered by the University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszów have been used by people from: Argentina, Austria, Belarus, China, Ghana, the Netherlands, India, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, East Timor, Ukraine, Hungary and Zimbabwe. The youngest student was 10 years old (of course in the Computer Game Design course) and the oldest 65.
E-learning courses currently offered by UITM include:
