More campus life at Uni Wollongong

But not so much for lectures

Uni Wollongong, will be “boosting” on-campus classes for the Spring semester, with appropriate capacity and physical distancing limits in-place. “We have heard many students that they have missed being on campus and making the most of the social experience for which UoW is renowned,” DVC E Theo Farrell says.

But lectures aren’t the biggest part of the plan, with 535 staying on-line, around 230 being live on-campus, and 85 both.

It’s a change from five year back, when it was students who liked lectures recorded, which some academics opposed.

Back then the “vast majority” of the 10 100 digital recordings in the university system were lectures – viewed 1.097m times in 2016 (CMM November 10 2016).
