Exam week & feedback on Digital Marketing short course
17 September 2015


The exam for our Digital Marketing short course opened this Tuesday after a fantastic four weeks of webinar sessions presented by Andrew Mashman and guest speakers Elisha Booth, James Lloyd and Rich Evans. With our short courses, one of our key priorities has always been ensuring that students get a free taste of how we run our courses whilst simultaneously gaining valuable knowledge that they can apply immediately. Project Management students for example can put down the hours they put into our short courses as contact hours when they apply to sit the CAPM or the PMP examinations.

Lastly, the Digital Marketing exam is still open 11:59PM AEST 22nd of September, so if you haven’t already please make sure you get in during the official certification period. Good luck!

After the Digital Marketing webinar series finished we received some feedback from one of our short course students, Lynda, who is part of a non-for-profit organization the Cessnock Gem and Mineral Club. Lynda adapted the strategies in our course (primarily aimed at businesses) to suit her needs, and already the Cessnock Gem and Mineral Club have seen an increase in their Facebook page and website due to hash-tagging and linking to associated interest sites. They’ll also be establishing a joint blog which will demonstrate their expertise and share their projects, whilst at the same time allowing them to provide dynamically refreshing content.

Hearing from Lynda was exciting as we do love to hear feedback from our students, as it lets us continually improve our short courses. If you have any great stories to tell about your success, please let us know!

Finally, as I’m sure you’re all aware, the Digital Forensics short course will be starting next Tuesday (22nd of September) at 8PM AEST. This is a great opportunity to dive into Digital Forensics with Dr Tanveer Zia – he’s prepared some practical tasks to go alongside the weekly quizzes. The forum is now open so if you haven’t already, sign up for access.
