That way, if you learn one lecture each week you can complete the 3 credit hour course within 14 weeks.That means we will run around 42 hour session for each course.

SEU virtual campuses organize classes without classrooms, exam without textbooks. It is a distance learning process which involves CD, lecture sheets, audio-video system.
