Procedures and Program Flow at Advan-kt for Fresh Candidates
1) Learners should apply for their choice of program’s level (undergraduate/graduate) to us (advan-kt) and we will suggest the appropriate modules for any specific degrees. We will ensure that the modules are in coherence, so that the MOOC can be used for the academic equivalence. We will issue an official ‘letter of offer’, once the learners pay the application fee. It varies from USD 30 to 50, upon the level of studies. As for advance students (who have already completed MOOC), please email to (firstname.lastname@example.org) your CV and certificates of completion for credit transfer.

Learners must register with the providers (edX, Coursera, etc) and once joined, the learners must inform us immediately to count semesters. Payment for the certificates of MOOC can be paid to the concerned parties, directly through their payment system. Advan-kt strongly encourages learners to obtain individual certificates of MOOC to show the world that they have learned from top 100 universities.

6) Learners must start reading all the lecture notes before watching the video lectures. Follow the MOOC providers guidance to complete the online assessments: including the assignments, quizs, tests and etc. All the studies will be assessed by a mixture of assignments and examinations, which is in fact, as similar as the traditional courses.
7) Learners may discuss with Advan-kt suggested tutors to understand very-difficult-modules and there will be a charge for the assistantship, directly payable to the tutors. Mostly, through electronics medium, such as email, skype, telephone conversation and/or via other technological communications. It can be said that the learners are supported by special tutors for better understanding through advan-kt recommendation.
