Drop-In Days 

We know you don't always plan to have to troubleshoot something in VU Collaborate, and sometimes you may just want to sit down and work through a task whilst having someone you can ask questions of along the way.  The Connected Learning Team have set aside daily times for you to be able to literally drop into the Zoom room and on-campus hives where we are.  You can drop in and ask a quick question, work through an issue you are having, or stay for a while and build some content in your space with us.


Virtual Hives

Join our half-hour sessions where Connected Learning staff are available to answer all of your VU Collaborate and Zoom questions.

These are held:

  • 11 AM and 3 PM on each working day. 

Get access by going to the VU Collaborate Essentials space , selecting the Communication tab then choosing Zoom Classroom from the dropdown list. You then click on Join next to the title and date of the drop-in session to get started.

No bookings are necessary.

VU Collaborate Essentials space

It runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm:

  • every Monday & Tuesday at City Tower in T1516.
  • every Wednesday & Thursday at Footscray Park in A202.
