LETTER OF EXPERIENCE AT AIU
To start with, I must first of all, express my profound gratitude to my Academic Tutors and Advisors at the AIU, and to the AIU Authorities, the officials of the Student Services, the Finance and the Admissions Departments, for their patience, show of concern and support during my course of study at AIU, which encouraged me to strive to excel in my academic endeavors as a student of AIU.
During the past years of my study, both at Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree Levels, I was taught through the traditional learning method and prescribed curriculum. But at AIU, I came into contact with the Open Curriculum System and Andragogic Learning Method, which I find very interesting and fascinating. It enabled me to select and design my own curriculum that satisfies my chosen career route. These courses provided me with additional skills and knowledge which will enable me to work across disciplines and articulate creative solutions for complex challenges.
Furthermore, through my AIU’s Assignments, Essays, Seminars, Video Conferences and other e-Learning facilities at the AIU’s Virtual Learning Environment, I have been able to extend my knowledge and understanding of higher education, on-line research skills, research methods, e-learning skills, and leadership in Educational Technology, and my knowledge and understanding of the Concepts of Globalization and International Culture.
Finally, in the process of my course of study at AIU’s On-Line Campus, I enjoyed some benefits which include as follows:
i)Working on my Assignments at my convenience;
ii)Having access to the Virtual Learning Resources at AIU’s Virtual Library;
iii)Benefiting from the AIU’s Students Support Services;
iv)Having increased opportunity for skill acquisition;
v)Benefiting from enhanced access to quality education;
vi)Getting constant feedback and advice from my Academic Advisors and Tutors on my submitted Assignments and on my reported academic problems through e-mails.
On the whole, I can boldly assert that I have enjoyed the challenges posed by the program which I studied at AIU. It was a most beneficial experience.
