South Africa: Milpark Launches New Online Platform

Computing

MyMilpark, Milpark Business School's new online learning environment, provides a platform for students with their own e-mail address.

Milpark recognises that the student is the principal player in the teaching-learning transaction and should be encouraged to take charge of his/her own learning experience.

One of MyMilpark's primary aims is to provide an improved learning experience for distance learners through increased interaction and access to learning resources.

The website will be used to deliver all learning related information (assignment due dates, exam information) content (assignments, cover sheets, subject specific information) and functionality (assignment uploads, forums etc) to Milpark students.

All current students have access to MyMilpark and will be notified of their usernames and passwords. The platform is also available on mobile devices through a mobisit, to which tablets and smart phones will automatically be redirected.
