Cloud (online) teaching methods and independent learning activities require access to substantial learning resources and experiences in CloudDeakin (Deakin’s online learning environment). Compliance with the Standards in computing, connectivity and student capability are a condition on your enrolment.


After briefing sessions, the content of the unit is the internship itself, which is a placement in a mutually arranged, supervised position where students will undertake a project for the workplace and report on it both to the workplace and the university.
The methodologies that need to be utilised in the project are dependent upon the type of placement. In this particular unit students will be expected to complete the following tasks:

  • An in-depth focus in at least one of pre-production development, production processes, or post-production tasks, and a demonstrated knowledge of the other areas that are not studies in detail;

  • Produce a folio of work completed (if applicable);

  • Produce a report of the placement based on the experiences gained, interviews with appropriate personnel and supported by research from other authoritative sources.


Written report of 3000 words (including journal of internship experience 20% and research element 50%) totalling 70%, folio or show reel 30%.
