Postgraduate study guides

Please find below some useful guides that may assist you in your studies. These have all been written specially for postgraduate students in Health at UTAS.

Referencing and EndNote

Acknowledging your sources when writing assignments is a fundamental skill of academic writing. Please be sure to reference your work properly.

EndNote is a useful program for managing your references and for formatting your bibliography.

Computer Support

Postgraduate user guides

Postgraduate students are expected to be able to use a number of computer applications. Below are a number of user guides designed to assist students in using some of the more common programs, as well as information about how to seek help.

MyLO Support

My Learning Online (MyLO) is the University's online course management and delivery tool. Postgraduate Health Program units are Web-based, meaning that MyLO is required for access to, and interaction with, content, communication between staff and students, and for aspects of assessment.

A MyLO User Guide for Postgraduate Health Students (PDF 584 KB) has been produced to assist postgraduate students in preparing for, and using, MyLO.

MyMedia Services Support

The MyMedia Service provides captured recordings via the Internet (normally through MyLO) to students. Recordings are made available in a range of formats including the MyMedia Player streaming format (a rich media environment), RSS feeds, and downloadable formats.

YouTube Support

Occasionally, postgraduate students may be required to submit a video file for assessment. YouTube allows for this to be done in a discreet way, without broadcasting your work to the entire Web community.

A YouTube User Guide for Postgraduate Health Students (PDF 385.6 KB) has been produced to assist postgraduate students in recording videos and uploading to YouTube.
