Scheduling Your Course Work:
Ambassador College of Christian Ministry operates from a flexible learning platform, allowing students to start a course at any time they wish. This means that at any given moment, you and your colleagues are at different stages on their learning journey, submitting different assignments. Our system is designed for maximum convenience to you, while maintaining integrity in the quality of the training you receive.
We recommend planning to complete each course within a 12 month period from your enrollment date. We suggest you sit down with a calendar and plan out a schedule for undertaking and submitting each of your assessments so that you can complete your course within the 12 months, or a shorter time if you prefer. It is also possible to take longer than 12 months, (for extensions longer than a year, please discuss this via email with the registrar so your login duration can be extended to the adjusted time).
You can complete online class exercises and participate in moderated discussion boards whenever it suits you. Just log in using your log in details and navigate around the course's homepage.
Try to complete and submit your assessments as you go, so they don’t mount up. You may submit assessments at any time via Enrollment and Assessment.
Our assessors will read your assessments and send you feedback. You will receive notification when your submission has been assessed, along with any applicable feedback. Our assessors are part time and can be busy with other responsibilities, but they will endeavour to complete your feedback by the end of the month in which it is received - provided it has been submitted before the beginning of the third week. For example, if you submit an assessment item on January 14th, 2013, we would endeavour to have it assessed by January 31st. If you submitted it on January 27th, it will more likely be assessed in the middle of February.
All students should make sure that the work they submit for assessment is their own. ACCM does not tolerate plagiarism of any kind. Any student found to have plagiarized someone else's work will be assessed as "R" (Resubmit).
What is plagiarism? Plagiarism occurs when you use someone else's work, in part or in whole, without acknowledging them as the author or source. In other words, you are representing someone else's work as if it were your own. What are some examples of plagiarism?
•Copying other students' work
•Copying passages directly from text books, journal articles or the internet
•Summarizing someone else's words or ideas in your own words without full acknowledgment
What should I do to avoid plagiarism? Always acknowledge the ideas, words and images which are not your own by using the appropriate referencing.
