In addition, students will have a tutor who will help them by reminding them of the activities, dates, bibliography. In general, the tutor will guide students along the logistic process.

The program offers online support to help students with technological challenges that may arise.

A very extensive digital library with data bases from journals, articles, books and a stock of digital books exclusive to this program are in place.

The platform used for the program is Blackboard. The course is supported with videos recorded by the professor, chats, wikis, discussion forums, and synchronous sessions in which the professor lectures and opens question sessions. Students meet through Blackboard Collaborate.
