Flexible Study Options

Category Summary Description
Web supported Online access to some parts of this unit online is optional. This unit is delivered face-to-face or by other teaching arrangements, but uses the Web to present supplementary learning resources (such as lecture notes, unit information), and/or other online tools for your discretionary use. You do not need to access the Web for your study in this unit.  
Web dependent Some parts of this unit will be taught online. This unit uses the Web to either present essential course materials, provide for communication with teaching staff and fellow students, and/or complete aspects of your formal assessment.  You are therefore expected to access the Web as part of the teaching and learning program for this unit.  
Fully online This unit is taught entirely online. Teaching of this unit is entirely through the web (e.g. through MyLO)– there are no formal, compulsory face-to-face classes or other forms of teaching.  (However, you may have to attend a University-authorised centre for examination purposes.)  
Resource-supported teaching & learning Additional resources are provided for your optional use; e.g. audio taped lectures. This unit makes available for independent study resources to supplement the teaching program – e.g. audiotapes, videotapes of lectures held.
Resource-dependent teaching & learning Independent study with provided resources replaces at least some face-to-face or other classes (e.g. lectures). This unit involves necessary, independent study on your part, using resources provided (such as print guides, audiotapes, videotapes, CD ROM etc.).  
Video conferencing A live video link between campuses is used for at least some teaching in this unit. At least part of this unit is taught by video conference– i.e. taught by video link from a remote site/campus.
Flexible scheduling Some classes will be held outside normal teaching hours; e.g. weekend blocks, summer schools etc. At least some face-to-face classes are held outside standard University operating times – i.e. out of hours, as weekend blocks, summer/winter school(s), or outside standard semester times.
Workplace learning This unit involves study in the workplace. This unit involves a  formal, assessable or compulsory  workplace learning component.
