"UOW is raising the bar when it comes to learning online following a signing ceremony held this week between university and NetSpot Pty Ltd representatives.

The University has an excellent reputation for high quality teaching and learning. The award-winning design of UOW’s physical environment plays a major part in making staff and students feel at home -- and in building opportunities for collaboration.

Learning online is the other critical part of the UOW experience.

Head of the Learning Design Unit in the Centre for Educational Development, Innovation and Recognition, Dr Kate Bowles, said students working together online are developing key skills in digital knowledge management and professional social networking.
