Distributed Learning Technology at FOB

The learning spaces in the Prinia 3 and Faculty of Business and Humanities buildings have been retrofitted and refurbished with the latest technological advances in teaching and learning, one fitted with distributed learning technology.

Distributed learning represents a multi-media method of instructional delivery that includes a mix of web-based instruction, streaming video conferencing, face-to-face classroom time, distance learning through television or video, and other combinations of electronic and traditional educational models.

A distributed learning system allows delivery of teaching by instructors to learners in multiple geographical locations and permits learner-instructor interaction in real-time. Students and staff at Curtin Sarawak campus engage in discussions and interact with their counterparts at its Australian parent campus in Perth in real time.
