RMIT University delivers interpreting classes by video conference to students based in Shepparton.
For the first time in Australia, interpreting students at Melbourne's RMIT University can connect to lectures by video conference allowing them to fully participate in classes.
Prior to this year, students would have had to travel to Melbourne to complete their qualifications. Video conferencing is proving to be the valuable link to obtaining students' Diplomas. Students also experience the benefit of becoming more comfortable with this increasingly used communication tool.
