DeakinSync is a digital space that you will access regularly, possibly daily, during your studies at Deakin.

You can access DeakinSync in your internet browser, so add it to your bookmarks and spend some time browsing the portal.

Access your unit sites

The most important function of DeakinSync is access to your unit sites: this is where your learning will take place. Here, you will access:

  • your course materials
  • assessment information
  • learning modules
  • message boards for communication and collaboration with your unit staff and fellow students
  • other resources.

After you’ve enrolled in your units, your unit sites will appear as tiles in the centre of your DeakinSync homepage. They generally become active one week before the study period starts

Other features

DeakinSync also features:

  • your course enrolment details, as well as a bar which shows your progression in your course (how many credit points you’ve completed, and how many you’ve got to go)
  • a news feed with links to articles to keep you informed about important university news, events and opportunities
  • a navigation menu which includes links to key Deakin sites, information and support (including the Library, StudentConnect, your timetable and your email).
