Course Assessments This E-Business Management course is marked through a process of continuous assessment guided by your tutor following standard guidelines. This means that your certificate of achievement will be awarded according to your performance on assessments rather than by taking an exam. We send the full course out, you then read through the course in your own time and complete the assignments which you send to your tutor for marking. There is no word count for these assignments. However, one sentence answers will be rejected and you will have to re-submit it for marking. Upon verification of the activities, exercises and assignments, a certificate of achievement will be awarded by ABC Awards, as confirmation that your written work has met all of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the programme.
Course Duration We recommend you spend approximately 120 hours of your time studying for the E-Business Management course. The pace of study is completely up to you. To give an example, if you dedicate 2 hours a week to the course it would take you a year to complete but if you could spare 4 hours a week you could complete it in six months.
