Deakin University has successfully transitioned its 60,000-plus student body to online learning, and migrated its Brightspace learning management system (LMS) to the cloud.
The project saw 48TB of data, representing a 60,000-student cohort, shifted once restrictions prevented face-to-face experiences.
After Covid-19 shut four off its physical campuses, Deakin rapidly shifted all students and staff to its digital campus, Cloud Campus.
The campus’ online learning environment, CloudDeakin, is built on the Brightspace LMS at its core, allowing students to actively learn anywhere, anytime and on any device while unable to attend face-to-face classes.
Deakin director Digital Learning, Associate Professor Chie Adachi, said CloudDeakin offers a signature digital learning experience “which has helped contribute to the institution’s decade-long leading position in Victoria for overall student satisfaction as confirmed by the Graduate Outcomes Survey”.
“Prior to COVID-19, about 25% of our learners were already in our Cloud Campus
