Online Campus

AIE has been running courses online since 2005 and a dedicated online campus was established in 2012 to focus on providing the best training and support possible for our online students. AIE Online is staffed by a friendly team who make every effort to inject the AIE experience into everything we do. Our teachers are experienced industry professionals who love teaching and are just as passionate about games and film as our students.

Online education is the choice for many people who want to choose when and where they study. All AIE courses are available for online study: whether you are looking to learn more about the fundamentals of games and film or looking at getting qualifications, knowledge and industry skills to pursue a career.

AIE’s Online courses are taught in virtual classrooms which bring the experiences of class-based education to online learning. Students can watch lectures, participate in live tutorials and interact with other students during and after classes. All sessions are recorded allowing students to go back over notes or catch-up on missed sessions. Teachers present group instruction, facilitate group projects and conduct private one-on-one support.

We’re keen to help you meet your learning goals and support a range of study options for those who are too busy to keep up with a strict study schedule. Let us know what you’re trying to achieve, and we will suggest the best plan for you.

Online Course Structure

AIE | Online Lecture / Guided Learning

Lecture / Guided Learning

A live interactive lecture or pre-recorded lecture which delivers new key concepts to the learners from the perspective of their specialisation. The intention is that learners reserve questions and discussions until the Tutorial session to keep the lecture short and focused.


AIE | Online Self-directed Learning

Self-directed Learning

Each week learners work through an assortment of content designed to strengthen and develop further understanding of new key concepts introduced in the lecture. The practice content can consist of items like exercises to work through, video tutorials developed at AIE, interactive practice / exploration apps and links to relevant resources for extension. It is assumed a learner has worked through the core Practice content before attending the tutorial.


AIE | Online Tutorials

Tutorials

Each week learners work through an assortment of content designed to strengthen and develop further understanding of new key concepts introduced in the lecture. The practice content can consist of items like exercises to work through, video tutorials developed at AIE, interactive practice / exploration apps and links to relevant resources for extension. It is assumed a learner has worked through the core Practice content before attending the tutorial.


AIE | Online Open Rooms

Open Rooms

Learners can book into Open rooms with a group of other learners or individually to collaborate or have discussions / help groups that are self-directed. This is representative of a class environment where learners are working on similar concepts or assessments and want a place to work together. It is also able to be used by multi-discipline teams. Open room time slots will be made available to learners before subjects commence and a booking is not re-occurring in the way a tutorial booking is. A teacher is not allocated to this time.

Assignments are given as additional content on top of the practice content and learners will be able to get assistance during the tutorial sessions or via a booked appointment with a teacher if required.
