Student review
This was a good course. It was a typical university experience - lecture notes were usually posted in a timely manner. The majority of lecturers were great, but it was held back by a few classes being taught by lecturers who were inflexible, difficult to understand and somewhat of a tyrant on the message boards. He would accuse the online students of wanting the answers when they asked clarifying questions. I graduated 2 years ago and unfortunately this lecturer really coloured my opinion of the whole degree. In general though, everyone else was more than happy to communicate via email, and would make sure that online students got to experience the course as intended.

Student review
Best thing about the course was that it could be managed with work. Tutorials were at a good time and lectures were available straight after class. Professors were helpful and really accommodating. Being an international student, it did not feel like a foreign institution, felt like home while studying at Deakin University.
