Established in December 2018, UNSW Online launched two programs in February 2019 in partnership with Keypath Education. The first intake on July 1 has seen targets strongly exceeded and some great results achieved in the first 6 months, strengthening UNSW's capacity for fully online program delivery into new markets.
Enrolments exceeded the 2019 target by 370% seeing 240 new, fully online students and 432 new enrolments (54 EFTSL). Students are located across Australia in addition to Hong Kong, Singapore, the United States, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, China and Malaysia. The gross revenue generation over the first 6 months of operation was $1,841,161 which exceeded the 2019 target by 777%.
In order to launch the programs, a number of organisation-wide initiatives were developed including a new career and accelerated calendar, policy changes, an orientation site for fully online students, a new Moodle theme, a professional development course for online teachers and implementation of fully online, invigilated exams, which are explained more in this video.
