Distance learning courses

We are together even at a distance.

The health of our students is a priority that’s why we maintain the courses via videoconference.

The teacher is still there, accompanying the learning process.


About our distance courses, it is important to know that :

  • The interaction with the teacher and colleagues is still there, only now it happens through the screen and from the comfort of your own space.
  • Our videoconferencing courses encourage practice, stimulate interaction between participants, and allows a direct conversation with teachers and classmates.
  • Classes are held on a fixed schedule with the simultaneous and direct to favor the learning of each member.
  • All courses and workshops maintain a pedagogical structure that responds to the learning objectives according to each level.
  • Support materials are shared and guided by the teacher.
  • They are an ideal space to meet and live with people who share the same interest in learning.
  • The courses are conducted via Microsoft TEAMS. The TEAMS system has been selected for being a platform that allows sharing materials, developing files and workbooks for shared management, carrying out joint activities, and archiving free-access pedagogical materials throughout the course session.
  • (TEAMS free version is available online French: https://www.microsoft.com/fr-ca/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/download-app
  • Teams in English: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/download-app).

There is a great effort on the part of the entire UNAM-Canada team to offer an excellent learning experience despite the circumstances. Therefore, we invite our students to find a quiet, comfortable study area that allows concentration and an active participation in class.

Note: Courses cannot and should not be recorded for subsequent playback.
