Hybrid learning is a feature of the teaching model as well. Students attend lectures, practical sessions and tutorials. However, part of the learning is dependent on access to the online learning management system, known at the University as clickUP. Training in the use of clickUP is offered to undergraduate students through the AIM modules while postgraduate students are trained by the Department for Education Innovation. Students gain access to clickUP through the student online portal. (They can also use the portal to perform administrative functions.)
Any mobile device, such as an internet-enabled cell phone, can be used to access clickUP. The University is aware that not all students own the latest technology. A system is in place for students to buy their own devices at very competitive rates but more than 6000 computers are available in computer laboratories across all campuses and within residences for student use. There are Wi-Fi hot spots across all campuses for use by students with their own devices. All students are provided with a Google email address.
