Our Methodology - Learning Material
Blended education is a field of education that focuses on the pedagogy and andragogy. Our technology and instructional systems deliver education to students who are physically “on site” for contact learning through classroom education. Alternate systems are provided for students not physically “on site”. This process creates and provides access to learning when the source of information and the students are either together or separated by time and distance, or both. Blended learning is the process of creating an educational experience of equal qualitative value for the students to best suit their needs either virtually or inside the classroom. The blended or hybrid approach caters for those students that are unable to attend classroom training. Virtual or on-line training ensures that students and facilitators, advisors/online course lecturers may communicate at selected times by exchanging printed or electronic media, or through technology that allows them to communicate in real time through online applications.
MetGovis (Pty) Ltd makes uses of various information and communication technologies solutions to provide specific tools for strengthen the educational experience towards fulfilling the needs of students. Learning is provided within a blended approach of receiving learning materials in hardcopy through the online platform and then applying technology driven solutions to make the learning process more accessible while still providing the necessary support to students. Students have access to a call centre. This live chat addresses queries and redirects any students seeking direct support to the respective facilitator.
Students are provided with sufficient time to complete the learning process and finalise their Formative Assessments. Notifications are forwarded to students reminding them of the due dates for the submission of their Formative Assessments to the MetGovis (Pty) Ltd for assessment. Preparation mechanisms are in place to support student’s preparation for Summative Assessments. This includes support prior to the completion of the final integrated Summative Assessment. The learning material is designed to ensure knowledge is embedded with the necessary practical skills generated through practical application exercises and assessments. Practical integration of knowledge and application of generic skills as per the critical cross-field outcomes will be assessed through the Summative Assessment.
1. A hybrid approach to course delivery combines face-to-face classroom instruction with online activities. This approach reduces the amount of seat time in a traditional face-to-face course and moves more of the course delivery online. During classroom instruction time, students can be engaged in authentic, collaborative learning experiences. The online components can include multimedia-enhanced content and channels for

2. The focus of METGOVIS (PTY) LTD will be on hybrid learning but blended with classroom training – Hybrid instruction, or hybrid courses, refer to classes where there is a carefully planned blend of both traditional classroom instruction and contact/online learning activities. In other words, hybrid classes combine the best of both styles of instruction and facilitation. Students are able to make a meaningful connection with their facilitators/instructors either within the classroom environment or on an online platform, as well as other students. – Hybrid Education: The Future of Instructional Models (worldwidelearn.com)
