Let’s take a closer look.

Moodle is our online learning environment – and is mobile friendly.

You will find the experience and activities change for each unit.

It’s here that your teaching team will schedule online tutorials, upload lecture videos, expect you to participate in discussions, and more.

Zoom video conferencing is used for meetings and online live classrooms.

If Zoom has been used to present a lecture, you can access the teaching material at a time that best suits you and replay anything you may have missed.

Feedback will be provided for each assessment and this is an opportunity to learn and apply that learning to your next piece of work.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you are unsure about how to apply feedback in future.

You will have access to all support services.

From our Academic Learning Centre and Ask-a-Librarian consultations to careers advice and IT help.

If you find yourself feeling lost, stressed or need help with technical issues, we’re a phone call, click or email away.

There are many benefits of online learning.

As a student, you will learn a lot about time management, motivation, and being an independent learner.
