Online study at UNSW is often one component of campus-based learning and teaching. When used this way, the online activities and resources are there to support and complement other course components such as lectures and practicals. For example, you might be required to take part in online tutorial discussions or collaborate with fellow students in an online small-group project.
Regardless of your mode of study, it's important to make the most of the online components of your course. Moodle is an open-source learning management system that is used to deliver blended and online courses throughout UNSW.
