Staff and students should ensure they are familiar with ACU's social media policy prior to using social media as a teaching and learning tool in their unit.
When selecting social media tools for use in a unit, staff should be mindful of the particular tools students prefer to use. Where a tool is unfamiliar to the student(s), staff provide or refer the student(s) to adequate learner support resources for that social media tool and support student(s) during the unit in the use of the too.
Staff should allow students to opt out or participating in any non-assessed social media interactions and if opting out, the student should not be at any disadvantage in terms of achievement in the unit.
The social media tool selected by staff should be one that is appropriate for students with a device of average capability and speed, and is brand agnostic.
