Distance Education

Overcome location and time limitations and fit study plans into your schedule


At Eva Burrows College, we know that learning is important to you.  At the same time, we understand that family and work commitments could limit your study plans. Hence most of our undergraduate, postgraduate and vocational courses are delivered online.

Additionally we recognise that no one size fits all. So depending on your chosen field of study, the online course will vary. For example, if you are learning a language, you may be encouraged to partake in regular online tutorials and sit online quizzes to help keep you on track through the formative stages of language learning.

ARK is the Learning Management System, used to support all units at the University of Divinity, the higher education accrediting body for Eva Burrows College. 

Eva Burrows Online is the online learning portal for our vocational and higher education students enroled in a Sydney College of Divinity award. The online learning systems are accessable to all students, whether you are studying on campus or online. 

In general terms, you can expect our online courses to share at least some of the following common features:

Live online sessions 

These well-loved sessions are not lectures, but rather a highly interactive way of coming together to discuss particular questions, solve problems related to your field of study, swap ideas with other students and ask questions of your facilitator, course coordinator or lecturer. 

Local learning communities

In many locations, we already have local learning communities which are made up of a facilitator and online students who meet together regularly.  This gives them the opportunity for personal interaction and facilitates increased accountability, practical learning and discussion opportunities, and friendships. 

Online assignments, tasks and grading

All your assignments and assessable tasks are submitted or completed online. Once marked, you can access your results and feedback online. You can also track your progress and performance in a current subject or across all of your current subjects.

Live or recorded lectures

Online students may participate in some on campus lectures in real time or watch recordings of lectures later.

Video content

Qualitative short teaching videos designed to introduce a particular concept or bring together key issues are a common feature of many of our courses.

Audio podcasts

Some of our courses also give you access to audio podcasts, allowing you to load audio content onto your preferred podcast technology to listen to when and where it suits you – even in the car or at the gym!

Interactive activities, lesson notes and quality content

Many of our courses feature a variety of assessable and non-assessable activities and content (such as quizzes, interactive presentations, self-assessment activities, discussion forums, group based activities and interactive lessons).

Readings

Engage with expertly curated reading materials made available to you online. Most of the time it will be possible to download these and read them on your preferred device (tablet, smartphone etc) or print, though some materials may only be available with an internet connection. You also have access to the growing library e-book collection.

Live Streaming

Real time learning is possible with our live stream options as you watch a live class at your chosen location.  

Private arrangement video tutorials

You have the flexibility to consult with your lecturer online and also to book a private or small group tutorial (subject to availability) based on your needs.

Online student services

There are flexible student support options available so that you can be connected to your learning community no matter where you are. You can access support through our Eva Burrows online self-service portal 24/7 and you can interact with and make appointments with our staff online.
