Hello,

Im just wondering what exactly learnline is about. For the course will we be sent out material in the post and have forums and things like that on learnline, or is the external course solely run through learnline.
I have logged into the student portal, but there doesnt seem to be much info up on learn line as to what to do next - it states to log in on the day term 1 starts.

Can anyone give me abit of a rundown on how the external course is run????
Thanks heaps
K

Learnline is used by all students. All the subject info - learning materials, online exams, assignment information and submission, is all accessed via Learnline. Your enrolled course info wont come up in there until the first day of semester or sometimes a couple of days before. You will usually get an email saying that a course has been loaded.

Yep most things are in PDF. I tend to read stuff on the computer though, the printing gets a bit too much!

Learnline is like blackboard...things get up loaded as term goes. Study materials can be cut and paste to condense them into manageable reading material. The cut and paste might seem silly but I found that it help me remember better.

Don;t forget to use youtube...hard enough if you cannot attend labs to see and feel equipment. Youtube gives you a visual...example how to ascultate using a stethoscope. How to differentiate between a bruit and crackles and etc. Good luck...and have fun.
