You sure can – all materials, including exams and webinar recordings, are made available at https://learn.itmasters.edu.au/ once you’ve registered – and you can start and finish the course whenever you like. You can also still sit the exam and earn your certificate!

That’s fine – the webinar recording will be uploaded to https://learn.itmasters.edu.au/ within 24 hours.

We don’t track, detract, or award marks for live webinar attendance.

The live webinar gives you a great opportunity to interact with the mentor using the Q&A or to connect with other students in the chat – many of whom will have a lot of industry experience with great insight to share.

The live webinar recordings are uploaded to YouTube with closed captioning and a transcript pop-out option alongside ‘chapters’, which is a clickable table of contents to skip to the section of your choice.

If you’re not too familiar with the YouTube interface, see our instructions on how to access these features in the following sections.

Some of our older short courses don’t have these features available.

Yes – you can access the ‘chapters’ pop-up by hovering on the YouTube video and clicking the subtitle next to the time on the bottom toolbar, which puts it on the right side of your screen.

Yes – subtitles/captions are automatically on, but you can toggle them on/off on the bottom toolbar.

You can also access the transcript pop-out, to put it on the side of your screen, by clicking the three dots and selecting ‘open transcript’.

Live courses will run for 4 weeks. If you’re taking a short course that has already run, you can take it at your own pace – with no start or end dates, it’s entirely up to you.

The short courses alone won’t qualify you for a job. However, they are good to put on your resumé to show prospective employers that you have undertaken independent research.
