Target audience

The identified courses are aimed at Italian and foreign students who are unable to ensure attendance at lectures or bear the costs inherent in a long stay away from home and Italian and foreign student workers, who, thanks to the usability and flexibility of the course, can access a greater qualification and professional updating.


The platform used to provide online courses is a Learning Management System (LMS) based on Moodle, the de-facto standard for online courses management.

All didactic activities are coordinated by the lecturer of the course or by the didactic tutor.

The didactic activities take place within four learning environments:

  • The Video Library includes the lessons, ie the video lessons and the relative slides; All the activities carried out within the platform are recorded and processed in periodic reports in order to monitor / evaluate the educational performance of the group.

  • The Media Library includes the didactic materials (Learning Objects) relating to the videolessons (eg handouts, videos, images, diagrams, animations, bibliographic references) which represent in-depth analyzes for each topic of the videolessons and are collected within an Intelligent Bibliographic System;

  • The Virtual Laboratory is the environment available to students for the deepening of their knowledge through the "learning by doing" tool. In this environment, learners find the exercises linked to the video lessons in order to practice during the course. Furthermore, they are assisted in itinere by a Tutoring system, in two distinct ways: individual exercises and collaborative exercises;  

  • The Online Tutoring environment includes all the tools for carrying out remote tutoring activities, and allows you to:

    • access collaborative and cooperative online learning environments allowing interactions with other students;
