Online Courses and Study Skills
Study Skills course, which is led by experienced IB DP teachers, is offered to students throughout the programme. The course is offered to help students develop key specific skills (e.g. effective research and writing, citation and referencing) related to IB DP coursework.
Online courses through Pamoja Education
For courses which are not offered in KCCIS, students may enrol in no more than one online course* offered by Pamoja Education (http://www.pamojaeducation.com). There will be extra cost for students who take an online course.
All Pamoja Education online courses are fully recognised by the IBO, in fulfillment of Course and Diploma requirements. The IB evaluates and provides ongoing review of course content, teacher selection/training and course delivery - all of which helps Pamoja Education to maintain the highest quality student experience and academic achievement.
Advisory/Cautionary Note: KCCIS students who wish to take a Pamoja education course must demonstrate evidence of being independent learners (self-starters/proactive!) who are able to cope with the challenges of a learning environment where the teacher is not in front of the class physically but is on the other side of the globe.
