    SUPPORTED ONLINE LEARNING

    The digital technologies that are transforming contemporary business practice in international markets are also transforming how we learn.

    At the University of Aberdeen’s Business School, we understand that technology can enhance learning at many levels, and are committed to ensuring that our students benefit from this. At the same time, we think that technology alone is not enough, and that at the heart of learning lies communication and interaction at a personal level – people talking to people.

    We call the coming together of the latest technologies with increased levels of communication and interaction Supported Online Learning.
