Online access to class material and resources
The Executive Master of Science in Communication Management is not offered online, but uses a Learning Management System (LMS) – also called Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) – in conjunction with in-class teaching. iCorsi is an open-source e-learning platform used by universities, schools and corporations all over the world. It is the LMS used by all Swiss public universities. The platform allows executive participants access to class materials, online discussions with classmates and faculty, course schedules and allows them to share any materials (documents, videos, links) and respond to self-assessment questions.
In addition, all EMScom assignments (tests and papers) are managed through iCorsi. The platform is fully integrated with Turnitin, an anti-plagiarism program that assists teachers in grading assignments on-line.
