Advanced online learning

We utilise advanced online learning technologies including Moodle, Jabber and other online tools to maximise staff-and-student interaction. During a real-time lecture, you can use digital tools to ask a question or participate in a discussion, as you would in a physical classroom.

  • Electronic library
  • Online or hard copy study materials
  • Recorded lectures
  • Study groups and online discussion forums
