Frequently Asked Questions

  • What platform does the University use to deliver subjects online?

    The University’s learning management system (LMS) is Canvas. All online subjects will be delivered through the respective Canvas subject page, using a combination of pre-recorded content, Zoom webinars, discussion boards and other online materials.

  • What will I need to participate in online subjects?

    Students will require:

    • Access to a computer
    • A stable internet connection
    • A quiet environment appropriate for study
    • Headphones (recommended)
    • Microphone (recommended)

    Note: Most smartphone earphones will usually include a microphone.

  • How do I access the subject materials?

    All subject materials will be made available online via Canvas for students to download to their personal device.  There will be no hardcopy materials for online offerings.

  • Will classes be interactive?

    Discussion boards, if scheduled, will be interactive. Discussion boards may be scheduled in either real-time or outside of class times.

    Zoom sessions, if scheduled, will be real-time and involve remotely meeting with your teacher in a group.

  • Do we only need to be able to listen to lectures?

    You will need to be able to listen to videos and participate in discussion boards.

    If Zoom sessions are scheduled, you will also need a microphone (check your computer which may well include this).

  • Do we need to be in a space where we can also speak?

    Yes. Ideally a quiet space where you will not be interrupted. It is helpful to have a headset that you can use to minimise noise interference.

  • Will subject delivery be live?

    Zoom sessions, if scheduled, will be real-time.

  • Will the subject be taught over the originally scheduled dates?

    Yes, there is no change to the delivery dates.

  • How will assessment work?

    Take-home exams and research papers and their related due dates will remain the same. Subjects with assessable participation will retain that requirement, and clarification will be provided by the relevant coordinator.

  • What’s happening with attendance hurdles?

    All subjects in the MLM have a 75% minimum attendance hurdle. This hurdle will be waived for all subjects that begin between March 23 and June 30.
