The syllabus page provides a recommended schedule for completing the course. You should aim to spend between 3 to 5 hours each week to complete the learning challenges at times which are convenient for your own schedule. The time you spend completing the challenges will vary according to your existing digital skills and experience. You are free to study at your own pace and access to the materials will remain open.

The Assessment skills for open, distance and flexible learning (AS4ODFL) course comprises three learning challenges. You will engage in activity-based learning and a quiz in the first two weeks. In the third week you will consolidate your learning and design your own integrated activity.
