F.A.Q’S ON HOW TO USE AOT COURSE FACILITIES
E-learning student support
Students will receive expert trainer support while they are studying. AOT trainers come from a
variety of backgrounds and are industry experts who have extensive experience in their fields
of expertise.
The E-learning Student Support Centre is open Monday – Friday, 9am to 5pm (Queensland
time).
Support can be accessed by:
Telephone: 1-300-726634 Monday – Friday, 9am to 5pm (Queensland time)
Email:
trainer@aot.edu.au
Personalised course inductions
Inductions are available by an experienced trainer by phone or Skype. Students are guided
through the online environment and learn how to access the learning content by navigating
through the workbook using the navigation bar on the left hand side of the window.
Navigation through the course
When students enter their course, they can easily navigate by clicking on one of the items in
the menu bar. The information related to that item will appear in the large part of the window
on the right hand side of the screen.
At the top of the navigation bar there is an information section that will introduce the student
to the course and the online learning environment. This section includes course outcome
information, technical requirements, information on the virtual classroom and a �getting
started’ section.
Students are also introduced to the simulated workplace which is used as a basis for skills
and knowledge development throughout the course.
Simulated workplace
The learning materials supporting the competencies in each course are set in a simulated
workplace. This simulated workplace is set up as a real company and is a registered business
with the Queensland government. It has an internet site where it markets its products and has
an intranet which contains all the documents and policies and procedures that enable the
student to plays a number of different roles within the company. Alternatively, if the student is
currently working in a business they can apply their experiences from their own working
environment.
Virtual classroom
AOT currently uses Skype to run virtual classroom sessions. This is free software and is easy
to download and instructions of how to do this are included in the online course. Skype is also
free to run and will work when you are connected to the internet and signed in to the Skype
software.
A �virtual classroom’ session allows students to:
•
gain more knowledge about a particular subject and have discussions with their
trainers and other students
•
demonstrate the required skills and knowledge in order to be assessed competent in
a particular assessment
•
re-enforce any area of training that the student requests

The virtual classroom session will allow the trainer to:
•
monitor the student’s progress and understanding and provide assistance where
required
•
collect and record evidence of the student’s skills and knowledge as they progress
through the course
Please note that virtual classroom assessment sessions conducted via Skype may be
recorded and stored as audio files and attached to the assessment evidence provided by the
student for that course.
Language, Literacy and Numeracy
Students are required to complete a Language, Literacy and Numeracy assessment before
they commence their course. This assessment is designed to gauge the level of support that
a student may require throughout their course.
Technical requirements
Students need to ensure that their computers meet or exceed hardware and software
specifications. Detailed information is provided in the technical requirements section of their
course.
Depending on the qualification students are studying, they may be required to have access to
office equipment including a printer, facsimile (fax) machine, photocopier and scanner to fulfill
assessment requirements. Participation in a �virtual classroom’ for mentoring or assessment
purposes will require a headset and/or a webcam. Students may also be required to provide
evidence of their skills by providing a DVD demonstrating their competency in a particular
task.
Access and communication
Students are required to have computer and communication resources to access their online
training environment. Through the internet they can access their course content; learning
materials; resources; Skype and/or recommended websites. Email is required to enable
students to undertake their study from their workplace or at home, to interface with their
facilitator as required and complete and upload assessments online.
Learning and assessment strategies
Students are able to access any of the online resources at any stage to build and construct
their own knowledge, or they can work through the modules in a more directed manner. The
course content is problem based with information gathering being encouraged. The course
instructions will assist students to identify specific information that they need to know and how
to save time by reading relevant information, develop research skills and good study habits.
The learning content for each unit is divided into topics which are based on the requirements
of each unit of competency.
All assessment tasks are completed online. Assessment methods include the completion of
short answer questions and case studies; preparing portfolios of evidence; participating in
simulated workplace activities, including the use of a virtual classroom to demonstrate skills
and knowledge. Students may also be required to provide evidence of their skills by providing
a DVD demonstrating their competency in a particular task.
Assessment tasks are positioned at the end of the individual topics and in many courses there
is also an holistic assessment which brings together all the areas of learning. A student must
achieve competency in all assessment tasks and an online progress report is provided to
students.

Recognition of Prior learning (RPL)
Recognition of prior learning, also referred to as RPL, is the formal acknowledgement of a
person’s current skills and knowledge, no matter how, when or where the learning occurred.
This is an important assessment pathway, particularly for people who are undertaking study
as the recognition gained may reduce the study time needed to obtain a qualification.
How does RPL work?
Your knowledge and skills are assessed against competencies of the qualification you want to
achieve. The following may also be taken into account during your assessment:
•
your performance in paid and unpaid work experience
•
results from formal or informal training and education
There is a simple four step process to gain RPL:
1. Decide on which topics you wish to RPL
2. Put together the “essential evidence” for that topic
3. Complete the application form
4. Email your evidence to rpl@aot.edu.au
The detailed RPL process is embedded within every unit in your course and is easy and
simple to follow.
Credit Transfer
If you have completed other qualifications in the vocational education sector you may be
eligible to use a competency already gained as a direct credit transfer into another
qualifications. The details of this can be obtained at enrolment from AOT and/or by talking to
the E-learning support centre on 1-300-726634
