Teaching for the current semester is delivered fully online, but the campus remains open for resources.
All class material including lecture presentations, tutorial exercises, readings, assessments and assessment guides are available via the SCU Learning Management Systems (LMS) called ‘My SCU’. Students can access these materials irrespective of time and location.
Lectures are delivered online live (the lecturer contacts students with the time and day of the class being held). The lectures are also recorded, which means students can access them at any time via ‘My SCU’. Tutorials are scheduled as per campus timetable. Students will be notified in advance with a copy of the timetable so that they can attend tutorials online. Tutors will contact students with information on the time and day of tutorials.
All Career Edge Internship program sessions will be delivered online via Zoom. Students will need to register and attend these sessions. They are not recorded. This is because the sessions are interactive and require student engagement.
The programs offered by Southern Cross University are accredited by the relevant regulatory and professional bodies. The online units on offer are identical in terms of structure, content, and assessment rigour to other modes of study.
Units often have a major assessment at the end of the academic term. Some subjects have essays, report or project, whilst others have a final exam. The current model of assessment for units that are delivered online comprise online tests, online quizzes and online exams. Your lecturer provides you with information concerning the structure of the online exam before the end of the academic term.
