Support for students

Not all students will know how to navigate or use the tools and features of your unit’s DSO site effectively, or what you expect of them in the online learning environment.

There are a number of resources available to assist students in their use of DSO:

  • IT Service Desk assist students with technical problems, such as difficulties logging on to DSO and computer and browser issues.
  • Student DSO support and resources website provides help guides, FAQs and information on how to successfully access, log in to and use DSO.
  • Student DSO orientation site provides students with an opportunity to become familiar with DSO and access some useful resources to help them with their online learning. Students can self register via the link in the News item on their My Home page on DSO.

These resources may be useful in helping you guide students to use your unit site effectively:
