Forum posts on Moodle

by Kerry Gordon -

You may already be aware that previously when a forum post was submitted or when a tutor marked your work, Moodle used to generate an email that would be sent to all those who were subscribed on the forum or to the individual student respectively.  Unfortunately, this facility is not working at present, so no emails are being generated. Therefore to see other participants forum postings, or what comments or grade a tutor has submitted on your reflection or assignment, you will need to check Moodle, as there are no email notifications. Likewise, if you want to message a lecturer or tutor, please email them direct, as messaging through Moodle seems to be hit and miss as to whether it sends an email to the recipient. 

We are liaising with AC Sydney, to rectify this, but no solution has been forthcoming to date. 

Let's hope this is sorted sooner rather than later!

Welcome to Semester 2!

by Kerry Gordon -

A very warm welcome to all our students both new and returning, it is great to have you studying with us! Some of you may notice that Moodle looks a little different, but all the same information is there. 

All of your tutors should have included their email address in their introduction for each paper. Please email them direct, rather than through the Moodle messaging function, to ensure a prompt reply. 

By now you should have received the relevant student assessment calendar and for new students, several handbooks to guide and assist you as you study. Please also note the student information tab above that has several helpful videos with study tips and other various helps for you. 

If you need any assistance please contact us at or phone 09 5801500

May the Lord bless your semester!
