Make positive change happen from your living room.

All you need is a computer, the internet and a willingness to learn. At ACAP you’ll embark on a fascinating journey to a deep understanding of human behaviour – but even online, you won’t be travelling alone. You’ll have ACAP’s community of educators, course advisers and students with you for encouragement and support. We come from many backgrounds and experiences, but we all share the belief that understanding people is the key to a better world.

How does online study work?

Online classes use a virtual rather than physical class space that can be accessed via the ACAP Student Portal. Just like a face-to-face class, you are grouped with other students and a dedicated academic teacher for particular units or subjects.

Peer-to-peer collaboration

The opportunity for online discussion and interaction includes questions, discussion of topics, debates and, most importantly, offering peer feedback to support the sharing of new information.

Engaging online classrooms

Our campus and online classrooms offer the same rich teaching quality and engaging learning opportunities.

Live & recorded content

Course content includes live webinars/lecturers, enabling you to participate in discussions and debates with your lecturers and fellow students in real-time, as well as recorded sessions enabling you to log on when it best suits you.


What tools will I use?

Interactive Learning
Activities are specific to each unit or subject and are designed to enhance learning through reflection, feedback and application of knowledge. These may include activities such as discussion questions, quizzes, toolboxes or video presentations.

Zoom Webinar
A live or recorded conference session between the academic teacher and students.

Student Management System
Your gateway to your student online learning portal:

  • Access your learning materials, reading lists and study guides

  • Access IT and library support
  • Access various study and personal support resources
  • Connect with career support
