Neal McCann

Director
TAFE QLD Online


1:40 PM Using a Student- Centric Business Model to Improve Student Course Completion Rates

Currently in Australia only 7% of students enrolling in online courses will complete them. Online learning is fraught with many additional challenges to the student including a lack of connection with the educator and a greater requirement for selfdiscipline. At TAFE Queensland 80% of students enrolled in an online course now will complete it. Neal McCann is the director of TAFE online and he largely attributes these results to a newly implemented business model which puts the student at the forefront in the following ways:

  • Easing the financial burden on the students by reducing their maximum course load to two units at any one period in time
  • Enhancing the possibility for personalised learning by offering a range of intake times per year, reducing the course length to 12 weeks and implementing moveable assessments
  • Understanding the specific skillset required to be a great online educator and upskilling educators for maximum student engagement
