Online learning offers our students a flexible way to study. Through our virtual online learning environment, students can access high quality learning content, undertake engaging tasks and activities and take part in online teaching sessions. For assessment, tests and quizzes are embedded in courses to enable students to test their knowledge, gain feedback and achieve results. To foster engagement and group learning, discussion boards explore topics and help students to learn together and share ideas. Online databases, e-books and journals can be accessed via the University’s Andersonian Library to support studies.
