About Open Learning

Attend Classes Online

In recognition of the diverse needs of students, the Open Learning program at Tuart College provides an alternative mode for students to study WACE courses without the need to attend on-campus classes. Open learning provides the flexibility to study online from home or from any convenient location. All you need is a computer with a broadband internet connection.

Live Online Lessons = eLessons

The Open Learning program is developed around regular eLessons where students attend a class online and work live with their teacher in a similar way to traditional on-campus classes. To provide the most convenient contact times, eLessons are conducted in the evenings, Monday to Thursday at either 6.00pm - 7.00pm or 7.30pm - 8.30pm. Lessons commence in early February.

Resource-rich Course Materials 24/7 Online

Comprehensive online course materials including activities, outlines, tasks, support exercises, extension exercises and assessments are available 24/7 to complement eLessons. Students can access this resource rich material at any time convenient for them. After attending an eLesson, students can work in their own time, to learn in a way that is most appropriate for their needs. Students also have 24/7 access to our Tuart College online eLibrary resources.

Talk to Your Teacher

Open Learning teachers are available to answer questions and discuss study issues in addition to the contact students have with them through eLessons.
Teachers may schedule further teacher-student non-compulsory online contact time at other times during the week that will be negotiated between the teacher and the students. Students will be advised of times for on-campus face to face meetings during the course.

Flexibility = Commitment

The Open Learning program provides students with increased study flexibility and opportunity. It is important to understand that students require commitment and consistent application to their studies to maximise the academic outcomes they wish to achieve through enrolment in the Open Learning Program.
To maximise success it is recommended that students do not enrol in more than 2 or 3 eCourses since each eCourse requires a substantial time commitment beyond the one hour weekly eLesson.

Making the Best Choice

Students should arrange an interview with the Course Advisor before enrolling in an Open Learning course to ensure that they have the required educational background and that the course selected will be appropriate to enhance their educational goals. Ring the College to make an appointment for an enrolment interview. Your enrolment interview can be:

  • an on-campus appointment for metropolitan students, or
  • a phone appointment for Open Learning country students.
