CityVarsity, a leading creative and media education brand in South Africa under the Educor umbrella is proud to announce the launch of its exciting new online platform – CityVarsity Online.  A whole new learning experience that is right at your fingertips with the addition of online courses.  This is a stellar milestone for CityVarsity and it is Educor’s first brand that has taken learning online with creative and media courses now available to people around the globe.

Previously, face-to-face and distance learning were the go-to options for students, but now with online learning, a wider range of people can access this tool.  Making this especially useful for people who are unable to attend classes or don’t have the time to sit through long lectures.

Students no longer need to be in a physical classroom but can access courses online.  Study material can be downloaded quickly and easily.  Through harnessing the power of digital and educational technology, CityVarsity Online designed by leading subject matter experts, provides an interactive global platform which facilitates dynamic learning with online tutors and peer networking groups.

Online education is dynamic. It allows one to gather information with the permission of the student about their progress immediately, so that the online campus can offer support timeously.  Such technology allows for the manipulation of time and space in education in which discussions no longer need to happen in real-time but can instead evolve over vast distances allowing for the development of an online learning community for each individual course.

Jessie Naidoo, Group Head of Communications at Educor said, “By giving students the opportunity to study, interact and engage on a digital level offers a breath of fresh air to the traditional classroom style of study.  Educational technology presents waves of change.  We at Educor aim to be leaders in this space with cutting-edge course offerings, sleek online facilities and live academic expert access at the click of a button.”

For 20 years, CityVarsity media and creative arts has been turning passion into profession. By building on its rich legacy of successfully offering full-time and part-time qualifications in Cape Town and Johannesburg, CityVarsity consistently produces industry-ready students with a real passion and zest for the creative arts spectrum.

Paul Lensen, General Manager of CityVarsity Online said, “In just four easy steps, you can register and start learning. It couldn’t be any easier and convenient.  With practical online assignments and peer group collaboration, students can interact with one another, bounce ideas, solve problems and learn together. By offering courses such as creative writing, social media, digital cinematography and mobile app design, today’s student can follow their dreams, wherever they are.”

Whether you’re a student looking to study for the first time or a professional executive wanting to supplement your CV, CityVarsity Online is a click of a button away from your dream career.  Just Click, Swipe and Graduate.
