Hi everyone I'm really confused as to what the difference between the 3 lectures are, is it just that one has learning capture, one has live-streaming and the other doesn't have either? I was also wondering what the difference is between the labs as most seem to occur at the same time?

Thank you so much
Hey there,

Regarding the lectures, I'll copy-paste part of my response from a different thread:

LC = lecture capture. If you select this activity, you will be able to clash this timeslot with another class (if you so wish). Any preferences for other classes which have the same time as this lecture will be considered (for a clash) by the system when setting up your timetable. This is a good option for students who plan on watching the lecture recording later, and want to attend a different class during this time. Warning: Some lectures have in-class quizzes, or you may have a mid-semester test during one of your lecture slots.

LSP = live stream Panopto(?). If you select this activity, you will not be able to clash this timeslot with another class. Any preferences for other classes which have the same time as this lecture will be ignored by the system when setting up your timetable.

You can also select attendance to the live lecture (Activity 01 in your case). Regardless of which option you select, you'll still get access to both live streams and lecture recordings. Additionally, most units don't monitor lecture attendance anyway, so it won't really matter which option you choose. After around week 2, live lecture attendance tends to drop anyway, so you can choose to attend the live lecture, livestream it online, or watch it later (recorded), depending on what you prefer! :)


Regarding the labs, you'll notice that all of the ones with the same time (e.g. Monday 14:00) have the same room number, except for the "Bay". Those are all the same lab, except each allocation is for a different bench/table number. Students usually choose specific bay numbers to get onto the same table as their friends.

Hope that helps!

Wow thanks so much, this definitely clears things up! So for the lectures, for the learning capture and live streaming one does this mean I don't attend a class and do it online?

If you don't want to attend the lecture (which in first year I would recommend attending) then you can livestream it online, or watch the recording later :)

Still struggling to enrol, with no ability to complete 2FA. I have contacted the Service Desk multiple times, and I was rung on Friday, and told that there was a 24-hour exemption so that I could complete the rest of the enrolment, but it just came back to the same screen, shown below. Does anyone have any suggestions, besides emailing back (which I've already done)? Pls???

Sorry I may have missed earlier posts about this so a bit out of the loop. Are you unable to use the Okta app ?

If you have access to a different phone, I would suggest calling Monash Connect, and they should be able to connect you to an IT support person to help you out on the spot. If you don't have phone access, I don't believe there's an easy way to bypass MFA without the exemption (it can be a pain), so unfortunately you'll probably have to wait for the email reply.

If you do not have a phone, consider using a pc-based phone emulator such as bluestacks. You can download Okta onto there and verify right from your computer. Here's a link - https://www.bluestacks.com/
