"Swinburne Online is a key part of Swinburne’s portfolio of innovative education offerings. Through our joint venture with Online Education Services, Swinburne has become a leading provider of online education. We have learned a lot about what students need in a digital learning environment, what motivates them, and how they learn. Through Swinburne Online we are able to provide access and flexibility to learners from diverse backgrounds, for whom on-campus study is often not an option.”
