As we all transition to fully online education we recognise that you may need certain things to ensure a smooth transition.
If you are in need of a laptop, we are excited to announce that we have arranged for students to be able to get discounts on laptop computers through Counterparts Express.
To register, please visit this link: laureate.counterparts.com
When registering, use Laureate Australia as the Company name, leave the Tax Number field blank. You can also use your personal email address.
Once you have registered, you will receive an email with a link to login and set up a password. Once logged in, there are a number of deals on laptops and other accessories.
If you need support, there is a “Live Chat” on the right hand side of the screen.
*NOTE – Order delivery will be made within Australia. If you are currently outside of Australia and require delivery to your home country, please use the live chat functionality to discuss options with the Counterparts team.
If you don’t have your own computer but have access to a computer/tablet at another safe place you can visit (friends/family) you can create a document on that and upload to a cloud storage provider such as OneDrive, Box, Dropbox, or Google Drive and then use the created document with your phone to upload the document to Blackboard.
Many internet providers are also offering deals or even free wifi so we suggest you reach out to your current provider to see what they have on offer.
If you have no access to any form of computer or tablet, it is possible to hand write your assignment and take photos of each page and upload them to Blackboard.
The Blackboard Learning with Technology site has a wealth of resources as well as a video module
which will talk you through how to access how to access from a smartphone using the Blackboard App. After hours Blackboard support is also available through the Student Hub.
