Technology-integrated learning refers to a study experience in which students achieve a given set of learning outcomes by interacting in more than one medium.
This approach involves the meaningful and balanced use of digital media such as recorded lectures, podcasts, text or graphics, with other elements such as a video or quiz. It may even encompass active learning methods such as student-generated blogs, where appropriate.
With technology-integrated learning, students will not only reap the benefits of face-to-face guidance and collaboration, but also – in carrying out some of their learning online – benefit from added flexibility and control over the time, place, path and pace of learning.
Honorary Doctorate Award
Dr Tony Tan Keng Yam2, 7th President of the Republic of Singapore, and Mr Kwok Fook Seng3, Singapore’s High Commissioner to Australia, are both recipients of the Honorary Doctorate from the University.
All Murdoch University Degrees awarded are accredited by the Chinese Service Center of Scholarly Exchange (CSCSE), an affiliation to the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China4

Industry: Murdoch University Graduate (2022)
Programme taken: Bachelor of Information Technology in Mobile and Web Application Development and Cyber Security and Forensics (Double Major)
I chose to enrol in the Diploma in Information Technology (IT) with Kaplan as I have always been interested in how technology works. Upon graduating from this programme, I knew I had to further my studies to expand my knowledge and decided to enrol at Murdoch University. My Kaplan Diploma granted me exemptions and I could proceed straight to Year 2 of the Degree programme.
Pursuing this Degree has equipped me with niche skills that are necessary to stand out professionally. Some of the lessons applicable to my career include practical cyber security and IT knowledge. Furthermore, I was also taught critical analysis and problem-solving skills and learned how to tackle problems in the real world independently.
I had plenty to learn at the University, and my Degree enabled me to secure my job. In fact, I have recommended Murdoch University to my best friend who will be enrolling in 2023.
