Online learning

Learning platforms are a key factor in your learning experience, which is why Melbourne has invested in the Insendi, an online learning platform designed specifically for business education and for busy professionals.

Traditionally we’ve learnt through face-to-face classes and a learning management system with readings and course information. In some cases, online learning has seen a ‘lift and shift’ approach with the ‘online’ component moving the lecture from the classroom to a video. The Insendi platform seeks to break this mould.

Insendi is challenging the online business education space by asking universities to reconsider how they teach online. The platform is built around your interactions with the content and with other learners, so studying also becomes about growing your professional network. Melbourne’s approach in using the Insendi platform has been to divide the subject into small segments, as little as 5min or up to 1 hour and consider what the optimal activity could be for you to achieve your learning outcome. There might be polls, chats, readings, audio, video, a quiz, multiple-choice or voting.
