How live streaming works

A set of rules has been developed for standards of practice for the roll-out of live streaming to other units:

  1. The minimum enrolment threshold for live streaming is 150 students;
  2.  The physical seat allocation for a 100 level unit lecture will be 50% of the total number enrolled (with a repeat lecture timetabled). The repeat lecture can be cancelled after census date if the attendance at the repeat lecture drops below 50% of capacity;
  3.  The physical seat allocation for 200 and above level units will be 40% of the of the total number of students enrolled (but this can be set per level if preferred);
  4.  There will be no repeat lectures for 200 level and above units with live streaming;
  5.   No additional on campus lectures will be timetabled even if enrolment numbers are greater than forecast (as additional students will live stream their lectures).
