e-Learning @ DUT

What is e-learning at the DUT?

e-Learning is when technology is used to support teaching and learning. What may be considered e-learning can take many forms. A training course that is delivered entirely online; a teacher showing students a video within a lesson; live assessment of student’s work online; students using interactive technology such as social media to work together on a project; students using their tablets to access worksheets and course materials off campus are all manifestations of e-learning.

DUT aspires to be a digital University.  To reach this goal DUT has put in place a Learning Management System called the ThinkLearnZone.  The ThinkLearnZone is a virtual classroom where students are able to access course notes, submit assignments, receive announcements, communicate with their lecturers and classmates, and undertake assessments.  As of 2016 all students will be automatically enrolled into TLZ classrooms.
