An interactive, media-rich experience

There’s a myth that online study can be a disengaged and isolating experience – that it’s just you and your computer. With UniSA Online, this couldn’t be further from the truth. All of our courses have been developed based on research in the learning sciences. They’ve been specifically designed to maximise your learning experience. You’ll be immersed in a rich social learning environment that builds your knowledge and professional skills through engaged interactions with your teachers and peers.

Expand your professional network from wherever you are

Online study doesn’t have to mean studying on your own. You’ll be able to connect with a community of other like-minded students – you’ll be able to share, debate and collaborate ideas through virtual classrooms, online chat, video conferencing, and online communication tools.


Online student community

You’ll have access to a number of online communication tools that facilitate student-to-student interactions and online ‘study groups’:

  • Chat to Online Course Facilitators through interactive forums
  • Interact in real time with other students in your degree
  • Hold virtual study groups with students who live interstate
  • Access chat facilities within the online learning platform.

Sitting an online exam

If your degree requires you to sit an exam, you can do so online from the comfort of your own home, or anywhere else in the world. To do this, you’ll need access to a microphone and web-camera and download and install a special web browser. The web browser blocks you from accessing restricted programs on your computer, and your exam is recorded to ensure academic integrity processes.

See if your computer, laptop or device is all set up and ready to go – it takes just a few seconds.
