Higher studies come to wheatbelt

A NEW project will be launched on 25 August to deliver higher education to wheatbelt communities.

From next year, Edith Cowan University will be operating in York. Using a concept similar to that of an Internet café, it will offer ‘high touch’ support for ‘hi-tech’ distance learning.

In a joint arrangement with a York telecentre, students can sign onto the ECU’s distance education programs. The telecentre will provide online access to courses and student services, face-to-face support from a learning skills tutor and a range of information technology resources.

From York, access to a network of 28 telecentres throughout wheatbelt communities will be made available, creating linked support centres.
