Hi Tuftylou The materials are paper format. You get sent a 'chapter' or two at a time for you to work through at your leisure. During the topic there are quizzes to check on what you have learned. At the end of the chapter there are a series of short answer and long answer exam questions relevant to what you have just read. I personally wrote out my answers in rough then typed them up and emailed them to HCC who pass them on to your 'tutor' for marking. The marked papers are then returned to you in about 10 - 14 days with any comments and pointers along with the next chapter. I found the course very easy to manage as I was able to take it to work and complete sections during breaks and then when I went away aswell making it convenient for learning when I was ready. Personally I was able to spend more time during the winter months rather than summer when I was busy with sporting competitions and the garden. I was also able to pass a few gardening questions outside of the course to my tutor who was able to offer excellent advice I hope this answers your question and you have fun on the course. Enjoy.
