Tutorials, Practicals, Modelling

All required practical or studio demonstrations or modelling are captured or recorded (uploaded onto Canvas Studio).

Tutorials provide an option that allows offshore students to take part. i.e. The Collaborate Ultra tool is switched on for synchronous activities, Canvas Studio webcam, screen capture or a pre-recorded video is available for asynchronous activities. (Great for interactive tutorials that occur in real time and can also be recorded for those that miss the interactive tutorial)

Online Resource Finder

COVID-19 has prompted an urgent transition to online learning and teaching(OL&T) delivery. In a flurry to assist, almost every school, portfolio and department across RMIT University has developed tools, tips, resources and solutions to support staff and students to move to learning and teaching online. This resource aims to make finding those resources a little easier by providing snapshots of and links to the website, channel or Canvas shell housing OL&T materials.
