University of Newcastle "Uni Tune In" app
A free University of Newcastle app has been developed to help students improve their assignment and study skills at university.
Uni Tune In features 17 short videos that focus on different academic areas including note-taking, understanding assessments and academic reading and writing.
Uni Tune In is free and available to download from the Apple App store.
The videos are integrated into the app so once it is downloaded no internet is needed to view the videos.
Uni Tune In was a collaborative effort between Erica Southgate, Suzanne Macqueen, Deb Bradbery and Jill Scevak from the Newcastle School of Education and Shamus Smith from the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
The project was supported by the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education through the Commonwealth Higher Education Participation and Partnership Program.
