COVID-19 RESPONSE

In light of the COVID-19 virus and the decisions by nations to close borders, we are working to get all of our courses into an online format. The courses are highly interactive and skills based, and will provide opportunities for skill development within the online learning environment.

Lorri Yasenik and Jon Graham

Getting Online and Course Involvement

Please note: Online courses are a combination of online videos and other information plus tutorials/meetings via Zoom and so require a specific time commitment. Tutorials are shown in AU (AEST) time and CA time (MT) depending on the season. The timing is an effort to fit groups from Australia and North America.

Students will require the following:

  • A quiet learning space with table/desk for completion of exercises
  • Access to a laptop with camera, microphone/earpieces, or headset
  • Software access: Zoom, PDF Reader, Video player, and Internet Browser
  • Secure Internet access with sufficient bandwidth to stream live video

If you want to double-check the times please refer to a time converter.
