All courses offered by CHC require the ongoing use of computer technology. To engage fully with the learning experience for the duration of their studies, students will need to have access to and be able to use internet-connected devices and have reliable connection to the internet. Students are expected to find, use and disseminate information, upload and download documents and video and audio files, prepare assessments and presentations, communicate with faculty using CHC student email and audio-visual communication tools, and manage and back up files. A limited number of computers are available for student use in the Learning Hub.
Students are required to have access to portable computing devices, such as laptops or tablets that can utilize the Microsoft Office suite, in order to undertake learning activities in various units in their courses. On occasion, students will be required to bring these devices to classes.
Students in the undergraduate Business courses are required to bring their portable devices to class in units such as BZ102, BZ106 and BZ201 and be able to use Microsoft Excel and Access applications.
Students at CHC are assigned a dedicated email address and this will be used to deliver important information and documentation. Students are assigned individualised login details for using Library services and the Moodle learning platform as well as individual space on the student server for the purpose of data storage. Students are expected to check their CHC email and access the Moodle site for relevant class materials and online activities on a regular basis.
Textbook lists for each semester are published on the CHC website along with information regarding suggested locations where students might purchase these texts. These retailers are not given textbook requirements by CHC so at times they may not have sufficient stock.
Students are expected to source the required textbooks in time for the commencement of the semester. Information about required textbooks is also included in unit outlines. Students will be expected to read the textbooks as required by the lecturer and to use them, where appropriate, in the preparation of assessment tasks. While the CHC Library does maintain copies of all textbooks, these are held on a restricted basis and should not be considered as an alternative to having personal copies of textbooks.
Information regarding any additional specific requirements is published in the ‘Specialist resource requirements’ section in unit outlines that are made available to students at the beginning of each semester.
