RMIT Interpreting students connect to class by video

RMIT University delivers interpreting classes by video conference to students based in Shepparton.


For the first time in Australia, interpreting students at Melbourne’s RMIT University can be connected to lectures by video conference. This collaboration between RMIT, InterpeterLine and authorised video conference partner, Videolink International, allows them to fully participate in class.


Prior to this year, interpreting and translating students would have had to travel to Melbourne to complete their qualifications with RMIT University. High definition, enterprise-grade video conference equipment is proving to be a valuable link between regionally based-students and their lecturers. Several groups of new migrants are being settled in regional cities and towns, highlighting the need for qualified and trained interpreters to facilitate their settlement process.


An industry qualification minimum, the video conference connection ensures an effective delivery of their qualification’s lectures. With technological advancements the video conference systems (Polycom and Cisco) provided by IntepreterLine‘s partner, Videolink International, enable a clear visual without the time lags and pixellations of previous decade’s systems.  In addition, the regionally-based students gain the added benefit of becoming experienced with this increasingly-used communication tool.


WATCH: Sedat Mulayim (Discipline Head, Interpreting and Translating department, RMIT University) discusses why connecting regional students is critical to culturally and linguistically diverse communities.


Our parent service’s (All Graduates) formalised memorandum of understanding with RMIT University lends itself to a close working relationship with Discipline Head, Interpreting and Translating department, Sedat Mulayim. The engagement of students outside of the Melbourne metropolitan area for interpreting and translating, has been an objective of the department for several years. Interpreting class by video is now a reality.
