This is just like a regular classroom, but teachers and students use the latest web conferencing technologies to connect. This provides you with access to more courses without leaving your local community. You will also build a wide professional network by studying alongside students in different locations and strengthen your digital literacy skills which are increasingly important in the modern workplace.
Connected Learning Centres are custom designed to utilise modern technologies, simulations and virtual reality experiences to offer you a wider range of choices, more accessible, practical training and flexible learning opportunities.
