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 opportunities 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.
