If you study a diploma or degree at Open Polytechnic, you will need access to a computer with internet. This means you can:
For all certificate courses, computer access is recommended but is not compulsory.
For some courses, you may also need specialised software (for example, MYOB, MS Access), a CD-ROM drive and a printer. See individual course descriptions for details.
Online Campus is designed to work in most modern browsers, however please note that Mobile Safari (the web browser supplied with iPads and iPhones) does not support file uploads so you will need to use a different browser if you wish to upload files, such as assessments. There are some third party apps that can be used for iPads and iPhones, however these are not guaranteed by Open Polytechnic.
Note: We use Microsoft software, and the resources we provide for your study are in this format. If you need to buy software, you can buy it at a special academic price from most software sellers (generally about a third of the normal retail cost). You will need proof you have been accepted into a course. Your letter confirming your enrolment will provide this. There is a list of Microsoft software retailers at Microsoft.
We have a helpdesk that can give you technical help or support. You can email our helpdesk at any time. Please include your name and student ID in the message.
