01. How does Distance Education/Online study work?

Distance Education is sometimes referred to as self-paced learning or online learning.

Distance Education is ideal if you can’t take the time off work, have family commitments, or just prefer to learn at your own pace. Distance Education/online learning only works if you have a disciplined approach to completing the assessments required to complete the course(s) you have enrolled in.  All students who enrol into our Online/Distance Education courses are deemed capable of self study prior to undertaking the enrolment into the course.

With the Distance Education option, you have continual access to our dedicated team of Distance Education Facilitators to help you with any queries you might have.  You can contact out team by phone or email.  IIT’s Distance Education policy means you will have a response to your query within 24 hours.

The time taken to complete a course by distance education/Online course varies according to the individual.  Each course has set nominal hours that are recommended for each qualification or course. You should set aside a minimum of 5 hours per week if possible, to keep the momentum and information retained more easily.

Some of our courses contain recorded lectures from our face to face workshop programs and they are available in our students e-learning portals, which allows students the opportunity to view the lectures and some Powerpoints for that module/course and gain greater understanding and concepts from these courses as an additional support resource in undertaking the course they are enrolled in. Our Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping and our Mortgage Broking courses have recorded lectures as a support resource.

Throughout the duration of your course, you have the distance education team there to support you in your studies. We pride ourselves on efficient support and marking and feedback so that students can progress smoothly in any course they undertake with IIT.
