We encourage the development of flexible modes of learning and teaching, the use of new teaching technologies and computer-assisted learning management systems.


Courses are delivered via Canvas, which replaced CECIL as our Learning Management System (LMS) in Semester One 2016.

Canvas is an intuitive learning platform from Instructure with diverse features and tools in a single online environment. It also integrates with some of our existing learning tools, including Turnitin, Talis, and Piazza. Coursebuilder pages can also be embedded.
