Independent Learning Centre (ILC)
The Independent Learning Centre (ILC) is situated within the library, which makes it conducive and convenient for students to access library materials. It is open to all students who wish to work on their homework, while having a teacher around who will assist you if there are questions. The room is often used by our Hawthorn Language students, where teachers stay around to help students with listening, grammar, vocabulary and writing practices.
All the classrooms and computer labs at our campus are equipped with ceiling mounted multimedia projectors. This has become essential as we have moved towards using PowerPoint presentation and internet resources as one of the primary means of lesson delivery for proprietary courses.
Mass Communication Studio
The Mass Communication Studio provides a mock-up environment for students to learn about narrative and documentary film production. The students work in teams with the equipment available to produce short films or documentaries.
As a mock-up studio, the basic facilities such as prosumer camera, handycam, boom-mike, redhead lights, chroma-screen allow the students to acquire the necessary hands-on experience after attending theory lessons on film and documentary. The students will have a better understanding and appreciation of the practical processes involved in film and documentary making – from idea conceptualisation, planning and scripting, shooting, editing as well as the distribution and promotion of narrative or documentary films.
There are 3 computer labs with a total of over 54 PCs installed with Linux and Windows 7 Pro platforms.
All PCs are connected to the Internet and Local Area Network. There are System Administrators providing support to the computer classroom from Mondays to Friday between 9.00am to 7.30pm.
