People choose to study online for different reasons – because it offers them flexibility; because they’re unable to travel to a physical campus; because it’s cost effective; or a variety of other reasons.
Undertaking a course online is completely different to sitting in a classroom; and an online course shouldn’t be something that has simply been lifted from a classroom and transplanted into a digital format. Or at least, that’s not what we believe at OC.
As Australia's first distance education provider, we've always moved with the times and made use of the latest and most innovative technology on offer. That’s why we developed OpenSpace, a world-class, easy-to-use digital learning platform that has been custom-made to suit the needs of our students. It’s been designed to help students progress and move easily through tasks using a modular approach to learning with a variety of content formats that are interactive and scenario-based, including a range of innovative assessment methods.
Unlike a classroom, OpenSpace is available 24/7, 365 days a year. This means you can study whenever and wherever you want, and you can fit your study around your life’s other commitments. You can squeeze in some study time on your daily commute, commit to an hour at night after the kids have gone to bed, or make some time on your days off. Whichever way works for you, it’s completely up to you how and when you study.
But studying online doesn’t mean you’re studying alone. Far from it. You can connect with other students via OpenSpace through our forums and discussion boards. There’s also a ‘study buddy’ system we have in place where you can partner up with someone else to help keep you motivated and working towards your goals.
Here’s a few key reasons why we think OC could be the right fit for you:
