Flinders Learning Online (FLO)

Most topics supply learning materials online via Flinders Learning Online (FLO), which can be accessed via your Flinders dashboard.

The use of FLO varies from topic to topic. Your Topic Coordinator should make this clear to you at the beginning of the topic. You should normally have access to your topics in FLO one week before teaching begins.
