ATUG Education Seminar: can't make it? Read below

Today, many students cannot attend class with their lecturer.

TAFE SA is offering a glimpse of how they reach their students to the first few participants to the seminar.

TAFE offers options for their students to:

  • connect from a room videoconferencing unit (you may be able to access one of them)
  • connect from a pc and webcam with a special login from TAFE (if you have access to good broadband - probably not from your organization , due to firewall restrictions , you may be able to " borrow " a login for the event)
  • dial in from a telephone.

To book a connection, you will need to contact Tele-Learning Connections by 3:30 pm TODAY to book their connection and for TLC to check whether the room or webcam software is appropriate. (TLC can make available a limited number of sets of desktop software available).

TLC can be contacted on either 08 8207 8446, or tlc (a)

Many thanks TAFE SA and Tele - Learning Connections!

ATUG would be interested feedback on your Digital Economy Experience after the event – email rosemary.sinclair(a)
