WHEN AB Jenna Harvey completed
the Introduction to Security course
through Defence's online Campus
system on May 9, little did she
know her efforts would bring the
number of Campus course comple-
tions to one million.
The Director General Defence
Education, Training and Development,
BRIG Peter Gates, said the one mil-
lionth Campus course completion was
a significant milestone for Defence.
"Campus is used to deliver just
fewer than 3000 courses to all Defence
members and has the capacity to sup-
port other forms of e-learning, includ-
ing mobile and other technologies,"
BRIG Gates said.
"Campus is a key part of our future
learning and development architec-
For AB Harvey, the fact that she
recorded the one millionth Campus
course completion was an unexpected
but pleasant surprise.
"I wasn't expecting it -- I just need-
ed to do my training," she said.
AB Harvey joined the Navy on
August 1, 2005, and after complet-
ing her training in October 2006 she
moved to Cairns and now rotates
between HMA Ships Childers and
Bundaberg as part of Ardent Two.
As a relatively new Campus user,
AB Harvey is still discovering the
many benefits that e-learning can offer
"I found it a lot easier to do the
course online; it was interesting. When
you're sitting in class, PowerPoint
slides get boring.
"I have done a few courses through
Campus -- all my mandatory courses
and some others including Suicide
Awareness and a technical leadership
course. Campus is straightforward and
easy to use."
The owner of the Introduction
to Security course, the Security
Communication and Skilling Business
Domain within the Defence Security
Authority (DSA), was pleased that its
course clicked Campus over the mil-
Assistant Director Security
Communication and Skilling Debra
Moloney said it was great to get more
exposure for the course.
"I'm pleased the learner found the
experience convenient, user-friendly
and informative," Ms Moloney said.
"Our team has worked hard to
ensure the course is up-to-date and
engaging. Most mandatory courses can
be pretty dry. This is the second ver-
sion of the course and we tried to mod-
ernise and make it more attractive."
Campus has come a long way since
it was launched in 2003 and the team
is still working hard to improve the
experience for learners and content
One project that has had a huge
impact on the way Campus functions
is the Learning Management System
Campus hits one million
(LMS) upgrade, which went live on
By moving Campus to a new deliv-
ery platform, Defence personnel can
enjoy a faster and more streamlined
e-learning experience. It has also pro-
vided a stable foundation for Campus
to build and expand.
As well as the LMS upgrade,
Campus is working with stakehold-
ers on other innovative technologies
and enhancements, such as virtual
classrooms systems and improving the
quality of course content through a
content developers resource centre.
The Campus team is also explor-
ing the possibility of access to a LMS
from outside the DRN (Campus
If the live trials are successful and
the initiatives make it into production,
these projects will contribute signifi-
cantly to training Service personnel
and will help Defence achieve its
savings targets effectively under the
Strategic Reform Program.
The one millionth course comple-
tion is a milestone for Campus and
highlights the role that e-learning plays
in the move towards blended learning
solutions for Defence.
