- Elimination of space - time barriers and, therefore, the possibility of bringing together people who are geographically distributed.
- Constant update of contents.

The Virtual Campus is an online teaching and interaction platform that the IUIOG offers to the teaching staff and training participants. This support facilitates the rapprochement between teachers and students and allows access to academic content. It supposes an educational support for the face-to-face sessions and a basic tool for the development of the virtual sessions.
Students must access the Virtual Campus through the page of the FOM Virtual Community www.comunidadfom.com the social network of the Ortega-Marañón Foundation that will allow to maintain contact with the faculty and with students of future editions of the course. The academic coordination of the program will provide them with a username and password so they can have access. To familiarize yourself with the operation of this platform, basic instructions for use will be provided.
Preparation of class material
The class material will be available in the virtual classroom. It will consist of an obligatory study material, explanatory videos, and complementary materials that allow the students to reach the necessary knowledge.
At the beginning of each week, the new materials will be activated (the materials already reviewed will be available in any case during the rest of the course), as well as the activities focused on deepening the basic elements of the subject, and to certify the acquisition of knowledge necessary to pass the course.
It is fundamental that the participants in the course prepare the didactic materials, individually elaborate notes with their evaluations about their content, and actively participate in the debates that are promoted each week in the respective virtual forum.
In addition, during the course you will be scheduled several live videoconferences, especially in relation to those contents of greater complexity. In these sessions in streaming, the teacher will interact and respond live to all the questions planned by the participants of the course. For those who can not connect live (attendance is NOT mandatory), these sessions will be recorded and then posted on the Campus, in order to be revised as many times as the students need.
It is important to point out that the evaluation system is designed with a triple objective: 1) Help to understand and assimilate the teaching materials; 2) To measure the level of knowledge acquisition; and 3) So that the student is qualified to pass the certification exam that accredits him as Delegate of Data Protection.
At the beginning of each week the participants of the course will be informed of the activities and deadlines set by the teacher, as well as the evaluation criteria. In order to pass the program, it is a requirement to have done all the evaluable activities that have been included in the academic calendar.
The closing week is considered a recovery for those participants who, for justified reasons, have had to postpone the development of an activity. However, it is important to keep in mind that group activities do not recover.
A key aspect of the evaluation is the active participation of the students in the discussions of the virtual forums. In this sense, it is advisable that they regularly access the virtual classroom and share their points of view with the rest of the participants and teachers. The coordination of the program and the tutor will give them timely information on each stage of the program through weekly communications on the bulletin board.
The planning of the program includes a period of familiarization of the students, of a week, in which an introductory module is developed, in which information about the evaluation system and the use of the tools is made available. of the virtual campus.
Personal tracking of participants
The direction and coordination of the course monitor the performance of the participants, verifying their degree of participation in the training activities and the results obtained in the successive evaluations. They carry out a regular update of the virtual campus with news of interest for the students, and send reminders of the tasks that they must carry out, according to the academic calendar. This monitoring is key to guide participants in time management and keep them motivated during the development of the program.
The monitoring is done taking into account the profile and needs of each student. The tools of the virtual campus are used to obtain information on the participants' access to the contents of the program, and their involvement in the discussion or debate activities.
Consultations and tutorials
The students have a series of tools that allow them to make inquiries about the content of the modules and transmit to those responsible for the program, any incident that may arise in their development.
The tutorials are made by activating virtual forums. The consultations to the professors have to be done through the virtual campus, avoiding the use of the electronic mail. Queries can be addressed through forums or direct messages.
