The majority of our La Trobe-Didasko students are what we affectionately call the ‘lost tribe’, students that for a multitude of reasons didn’t take the traditional route of going from high school to university. I am a member of this tribe and this is my story.
For the last three years, we have offered 100% online studies in both business and information Technology. These applied La Trobe qualifications have redefined what truly 100% online studies are. All our courses are created specifically for the online learning medium, including all assessments.
We invite you to sample some of the learning content you can expect from our applied IT and business courses. The videos on this page are sampled from various subjects and demonstrate the calibre of engagement we strive to provide to our students.
As a former student, we approached Eric to share his insights into the IT industry as a graduate to his current role. You may be surprised with his insights and experiences.
Aaron was good enough to sit down with the team at our Career Support Centre to share his insights from the early days of his IT career up to today. We think you’ll find Aaron’s thoughts invaluable as you plan your next steps in your IT career.
The online Bachelor in Applied Information Technology, designed by Didasko in collaboration with academic experts at La Trobe, beat Cambridge University Press to win the ‘Tertiary (wholly Australian) Teaching and Learning Resource – digital only’ category at the 25th Educational Publishing Awards Australia on 20 September.
Today we shine a spotlight on one of our students, 41-year-old Agnes, who works full-time in the hospitality industry and who is also currently in her second year of a La Trobe-Didasko IT degree.
According to Agnes, she had been wanting to study IT and had been planning to get a degree for the past 10 years but could not find a suitable course.
This is a question that is getting asked more often than ever.
As we, and other education institutions, include online options in our catalogue of courses, many people want to understand the difference between this, and the campus experience that universities are traditionally known for.
The short answer is, of course, no.
Unfortunately, those who are studying with a view to a future career, are often left with a less-than-satisfactory experience. Sadly, either the qualification they achieve has out-of-date content, or there are limited career opportunities in the industry chosen.
Luke, a Brisbane based IT Manager, chose to study Latrobe/Didasko’s online business degree with a management major as a way to progress in his chosen career of IT.
According to Luke even though he’s worked in the IT industry for 17 years, in order to get to the next step, he needs a recognised qualification.
As IT Manager for a small not-for-profit organisation in Western Australia, La Trobe-Didasko student, Paul, decided to enrol in our Bachelor of Applied Information Technology on a part-time basis to further his learning in the field and secure the right qualifications to support his position in his company.
