    They see it as having a postive impact on retention. Retention issues are often related to the fact that people have many demands on their time, so providing greater flexibility will assist students.
    The staff at Coonara believe that outcomes and retention go hand in hand. Increased flexibility has to improve outcomes, as technology increases their ability to better cater for individual needs.

    In 2008 Coonara will offer accredited programs with a blended learning component.
    Pre- accredited delivery will also be considered, but the demand is not as high– more demand for accredited training.

    Another thing that they’ve uploaded is a Google calendar, and the students absolutely love this. They can get onto the calendar and find out things like assessment due dates, what’s coming up on the program for their learning, any field expeditions etc, where they have to go at what times etc, all that kind of thing. They can also put things up themselves, and so we get students’ birthdays and all sorts of things happening on there as well and they really enjoy using that.
    Another thing the tutor has done is she has uploaded assessment tasks and in a face-to-face session together we showed the students how to download them and they’ve all managed to do that at home now, except for the one student who has been buddied.

    Blended learning as a business option
    Coonara feels that the integration of ICTs into all aspects of their operations is absolutely essential for sustainability.

    People are doing so much online personally and professionally, that they may chose to go elsewhere if their local adult education organisation that does not offer blended options. Coonrara does not see blended learning as a niche market, ie it does not fill a gap, but is an integral part of educational delivery.
