Open Universities Australia @ Curtin -
Information for Curtin Staff

Flexible Learning Support (FLS) is the first point of contact for students. FLS staff will assist with some student queries for example: Provision of Student IDs and Access to various university systems.

Since the implementation of the OUA Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) project and the creation of OUA Badged Courses many of FLS's procedures have changed. As a result we have written formal procedure documents which you can now access from this web page.

Detailed procedures (all updated June 2013) for handling our two cohorts of students are provided as PDF documents below:

Information provided to students

ALL OUA students are sent the appropriate copy of FLS's 'Going the Distance - Flexible Learning' booklet. Last updated February 2014

Generic students are sent a hardcopy of the GTD booklet when they are enrolled in their first study period or session. Students will not be sent the booklet again for each further study period/session but will receive an email that includes a link so they can access the booklet from the eLearn website.

CSP students receive the GTD booklet by email every study period.

Please note: Both versions of the GTD booklet are reviewed and updated annually in time for the commencement of Study Period One or Session One.

Examinations

Mid-Study Period Tests

If a unit has a mid-study period test, FLS organises this for the students - see the eLearn website for more information.

Final Invigilated Examinations

The final invigilated examinations are handled by OUA Exam Services in Melbourne. FLS collects the examination papers from the academics and sends them to Melbourne.

When the papers are returned they are logged onto Student One before being distributed to the schools. OUA Exam Services in Melbourne have a website which provides detailed information on their examination services.

If your unit is offered through OUA and contains a final invigilated exam, please include the following information in your Unit Outline:

Invigilated Exams

OUA Exam Services Melbourne is managing the final invigilated examinations. Detailed instructions and the Final Examination Timetable is available on the OUA Exam Services website.

If you wish you can visit the OUA Exams Info pages we have set up for students and invigilators.
