Is there more flexibility now with census dates and what not? Say I get covid mid-semester and am out of action for 2 weeks my semester is pretty well a write off. Is there any recourse to drop out or to bad so sad, do it again next semester and pay again?

Kayla - Client Services

You normally have lectures before studying the supplied materials and workshops AFTER studying the materials.

I presume Blackboard is still the method of interaction or are there additional tools we will require?
Raina Mason - Chair Engineering/IT
59:04
yes via Blackboard (it looks different though!), and if you need additional tools for a particular unit it will tell you about them in Module 0 (the introduction to the unit)
Craig Murphy
01:00:49
Does the dependency on prescribed text books change with the new model?
Vinh Bui (MIT/MITM Course Coordinator)
01:01:18
The content is on BB but the online sessions will be delivered either through BB Collaborate or Zoom or other online platforms.
Craig Murphy
01:02:57
As at today, my BB looks the same for me as it was last year. Is there a new URL or will I see the new look from next week?
Vinh Bui (MIT/MITM Course Coordinator)
01:04:39
May be we can show an example module to the students?
On-Lit
01:04:54
is it possible to share screen to show the new look of BB?

ash jacobs
01:07:58
my concerns were to do with health problems where I would be unable 2 study for 2 weeks for instance last semester I was unable to study for that time period but I was able to catch up because of the 12 week layout but now 2 weeks is 1/3rd of the unit
ash jacobs
01:09:56
ahh ok I was worried about the fees still being charged
Raina Mason - Chair Engineering/IT
01:10:36
Unfortunately I have another commitment - thanks everyone for coming :)
Arlo
01:14:07

Craig Murphy
