Greetings from Chifley

Introduction to Blackboard


This week we will tell you a thing or two about your new Learning Portal: Blackboard which is your new learning portal for Trimester 1.

Current Chifley at Torrens University Australia students will have Blackboard access from 15 February 2016.

As part of this access you will receive:
  • A brand new Torrens University Australia (TUA) email address in week commencing 01 February (Yay!)
  • A central login (CAS) that will provide you access to all essential TUA learning platforms. This  will be sent to you in the week commencing 01 February.
Trimester 1 enrolment instructions will now be sent to all current students on the Friday 22 January (the next newsletter).

Enrolments will then open on Monday 01 February. We will not be able to process any re-enrolments before then but we love that many of you are planning your studies in advance.

All important information will be updated on Chifley section of the Torrens Wakefield Hub (Click Here).

We appreciate that there are significant changes occurring as we upgrade our systems and are fully integrated into the Torrens University family but Socrates said 'The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.'

MBA Program Director

So, tell me about Blackboard..


Blackboard is a virtual learning environment and course management system. It is your new Learning Portal as a Chifley Business School student at Torrens University Australia.
 
You will use it to access all of your subject notes and assessment information, communicate with your lecturer and other students via direct messaging and discussion forums, submit assessments and complete quizzes, and much more.

Check the Blackboard Page @Wakefield and Online Hub for further details and information.

In our upcoming newsletters we will provide more info on how to log in and navigate Blackboard.
 

When can I access it?


Current Chifley students will have access to Blackboard from 15 February 2016.

Login details will be sent during the enrolment period for Trimester 1.
 

Tell me about the log-in process...


Sure. Your log-in page is called CAS and it's your authentication gateway to all secure Torrens systems.

Your CAS login details will be sent to you at time of enrolments  in week commencing 01 February.
