Why learn online with us?

It’s flexible – our courses run to a schedule to maximize peer-to-peer interaction, but you can log in at any time of the day and decide when you learn during the week.

It’s accessible – wherever you are in the world, you can join in and interact with a diverse global group.

It’s practical – learning over a longer period of time alongside your daily work means you have a fantastic opportunity to put what you learn into practice immediately, and come back with questions!

It’s interactive – our courses are designed to facilitate engagement with other learners and your expert facilitator, as well as including a range of interactive individual resources.

It’s fun! our learners say so!

“This is one of the best courses I have been through. The immediate transference of learning was unbelievable. The mix of learning individually, in teams and as a whole group was a great way to learn and teach each other.” Ann Spencer-Arscott, Executive Director of Bermuda Red Cross (eWorkshop participant)

Humentum offers two types of online course: eWorkshops and Flex courses.

Try a Flex course to learn new knowledge socially and flexibly, or join an eWorkshop for a highly practical, in-depth look at specific skills

Practical information
eWorkshop and Flex courses both have scheduled course dates when facilitation is provided. eWorkshops have a more intensive time commitment and require learners to meet weekly deadlines, while Flex courses have a lighter and even more flexible workload. 

Neither course type has live ‘real-time’ sessions (like webinars) – this means there are no set times when you have to be online, so learners from any time zone can participate. You can access the course pages whenever you wish and complete the tasks at a time that suits you.

eWorkshop

The time commitment is about 5-7 hours per week. To get the most out of the learning experience, this time should be spread out through the week. We recommend logging in 4 or 5 times per week.

Collaborative team tasks and group interactions are a key part of eWorkshops, so it’s important that you complete each week’s work within the scheduled course week. However, there are no ‘real-time’ sessions, so you can choose when you want to log in within the weekly timeframe. Logging in early in the week will allow you to contribute more and have a richer learning experience.

The course week runs from Wednesday to Tuesday, so it’s possible to work at the weekend if you prefer. If you miss a course week completely, you may not be able to formally ‘pass’ the eWorkshop. After the course the materials are available for several months.

Flex course

The time commitment is about 2-4 hours per week if spread evenly across the time the course is available.  However you can choose to spend more time on it and finish the course sooner, or spend less time at the beginning and catch up later.The course is facilitated for a set number of weeks. After that, it is usually available for another week or two for anyone who is still finishing off.

What benefits do Online "Flex" courses offer?
A Flex course allows you to learn essential content completely on your own time over a specified amount of time: 

  • Learn through engaging videos, assignments, and structured reading
  • Interact and learn with other participants and a facilitator in a virtual and social learning environment
  • Earn points for various tasks completed, including watching videos, completing assignments, leaving comments and interacting with others
  • The more tasks you complete, the more points you’ll earn. And the quicker you earn these points, the sooner you’ll complete the course.
