Case study: Auckland Online

Auckland Online is part of the University of Auckland, one of the world’s top 100 universities (QS 2021). For the launch of its online arm, the university required an efficient learning design process and course quality that matched its on-campus reputation.

Leveraging our proven co-design process, OES delivered Auckland Online’s first four postgraduate qualifications. An orientation module was also delivered, empowering students to engage with the online environment. Importantly, these initial qualifications provided the university with a best practice learning model to inform all future online approaches.

This successful partnership is ongoing, with more than 40 new projects in development, ranging from full online qualifications to videos and infographics.

“Thank you all so much for what you have done to improve the online program. It has definitely been a pleasure working with you as you all spun your magic to provide a better interactive, exciting online course, while maintaining the integrity of my words, thoughts, feelings, and expressions.”

Fiona McGrath, Lecturer, Faculty of Education and Social Science, Auckland Online, the University of Auckland

Our partnership with Auckland Online:

  • 4 100% online postgraduate qualifications
  • 1 online orientation unit
  • 40+ new projects in development
