Course TitleInformation Technology Certificate 2 (Information, Digital Media and Technology)
RegionWestern Adelaide Secondary Schools Network
Host OrganisationThebarton Senior College
Course Length2 semesters (1 year)
DescriptionThis course is studied online through the Thebarton Moodle. However, in order to build a supportive and effective IT environment, a face-to-face orientation session will be held at the start of the course. This course requires students to demonstrate their ability to set up hardware and install and customise software as well as troubleshoot problems. A practical test session will be held at Thebarton Senior College so that this can take place under supervision and with the required equipment available. Students may be able to negotiate alternative arrangements if this session time does not suit them. Other interactivity between students will be on the Moodle or at other face-to-face sessions as required. Online video links such as Facetime, Skype or similar may be used to hold one-to-one sessions with the online teacher.
