Learning skills teacher Asha Sunil has developed more than 100 new video resources, giving students access to important numeracy learning materials on demand online.
Asha oversaw the Learning Lab Numeracy Video Project, providing a suite of numeracy videos to support students with their assessments, classes and independent study.
She also showed great initiative when collaborating with Holmesglen departments, including Educational Media Services, says Kathleen Schumann, her manager at the Learning Skills Centre.
“Many students have expressed their appreciation for these resources, commenting that the videos have provided a refresher of skills they learned many years ago and assisted them with their return to study,” says Kathleen.

Engagement and Support
In 2020, our Marketing and Communications team shifted Holmesglen to Virtual Open Days – lifting event attendance by 10 per cent, generating over $4 million in revenue from enrolments and setting the example for all other Australian TAFEs.
Launching the flagship event series in May, the team produced a suite of new material to help thousands of Victorians find their dream study opportunities.
This included the development of new online course presentations, high quality and closed caption videos, virtual study area and campus tours, dedicated FAQs, and student testimonials.
“The marketing team exceeded my highest expectations, at a time when all of us were grappling with so much change,” says Holmesglen Marketing and Communications Manager Zac Vlahandonis.
“They also worked collaboratively with all teaching areas, who also rose magnificently to the occasion.”

Nursing teacher William Chadwick has been instrumental in the Nursing Department’s move to online learning.
In 2020, William coordinated a video project, recording and animating over 50 nursing skill-set videos that students can access remotely.
William’s initiative has helped teaching staff provide consistent and engaging classes and standardise skill assessments, says Diploma of Nursing Education manager Jianbo Chang.
The videos have also been used within our teaching team to ensure consistency across two campuses delivering the diploma.
“These videos assisted our students with their very first online learning. Students are now well prepared before attending the in-campus labs and have improved their learning experiences,” says Jianbo.
