How does distance education work?
Distance education (also known as off-campus study) is becom
ing increasinly popular as a way to combine study with work or family commitments. Students studying off campus by distance education take exactly the same course as on-campus students except that you receive comprehensive study materials in place of attending the on-campus lectures. These may include study guides, reading lists, and video & audio tapes, as well as the Deakin Software Essentials DVD.
Off-campus students are supported through our award-winning library services, among the best in the world; and interactive study methods including:
•Online conferencing - Deakin's use of online technologies means that studying off campus doesn't feel like studying at a distance. For peer support and for group and individual communication between our staff members and students, online conferencing is an increasingly important part of our teaching and learning environment.
•Tutorial and tele-tutorial groups - Depending on local enrolments in the same units, we can form these groups between you and a University appointed tutor. As a group member, you have the opportunity to discuss any aspect of your unit with your tutor and to make contact with other students. The tutorials are usually held in Geelong, Melbourne and Warrnambool.
•Weekend schools - These are conducted in some courses to enable you to meet our academic staff members and your fellow students. Depending on the unit, the school is usually held only once each trimester, over one or two weekend days. It is usually not compulsory to attend.
