Questions and answers are also recorded by Blackboard Collaborate. This means students who are unable to engage with the lecture in real time due to work or caring commitments can learn from the same question and answer interactions when they view the lecture at a later time.
“My experience delivering lectures via Blackboard Collaborate has been so positive that I plan on continuing to use this facility when lectures will resume on campus. Doing so will allow students both in class and at home to ask and answer questions, in real time, in a comfortable and efficient manner,” Associate Professor Gignac said.

Paediatric Exercise Rehabilitation
Students undertaking the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology have a requirement to gain experience developing a goal-based intervention for a child with a movement difficulty or mental health disorder within our iFit program.
While iFit is usually delivered face to face, our current cohort of MCEP students have transitioned iFit clients to online training via Zoom, allowing children and their families to continue the exercise program from home.
This is a superb outcome, and families are thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to interact live with their student iFit coach. The student coaches are learning great skills in aspects of Telehealth at the same time; a valuable skill in a changing world.
