TAFE Western’s network of Connected Classrooms allows students and teachers from all colleges to join together for classes via our state-of-the-art video conference technology.
In a typical Connected Classroom session there may be other students in the same room as you, while your teacher and students from other colleges will be seen on the video conference screen.
In many respects this is the same as a ‘regular’ class:
- You will be able to see and talk to your teacher and other students as though they were in the room with you.
- Your learning resources and activities will be sent through the network and displayed on the interactive whiteboard in your classroom.
- Staff at your TAFE college will be there to support you in your studies and provide any assistance that you need.
Depending on your course, you may have a number of Connected Classroom sessions scheduled each week, or you may only have one or two each Semester. Please refer to the course information for further details on the attendance requirements for each course.
TAFE Western’s Connected Classroom network is the cornerstone of our award winning TAFE Western Connect strategy. This strategy ensures that students from our small and remote colleges can join courses being offered from anywhere in the Institute - this means you have more choices in more places.
