Campus Pack Blogs, journals, podcasts or Wiki’s can be used as assessment material. It is an exciting and creating way for you to express and share ideas as well as comment and engage with other students. The teacher will let you know if you need to submit assessments using one of the Campus Pack tools. VU also provides access to Lynda.com for you to access extra learning resources and tutorials you may need.
It is a tool on VU Collaborate for students to complete blogs, journals, podcasts or wiki assessments designed by the teacher. It also allows you to post pictures, share links and post audio and video recordings.
To learn how to submit posts on Campus Pack read up on one of these guides on using Campus Pack Blogs, Journals, Podcasts or Wiki.

Unfortunately, only the teacher can create Campus Pack tools. However, you can use ePortfolio as your personal portfolio tool for storing, organising, reflecting on and sharing items that represent your learning. You can include documents, graphics, audio files, videos, presentations, course work, etc. to demonstrate your improvement or mastery in a certain area.
The teacher may choose to assess your Campus Pack submissions as a numerical grade or as written feedback. If your submission is numerically graded, check your Gradebook for a score. Alternatively, if the teacher has given you written feedback, check for a reply below your Campus Pack post. If unsure, check with the teacher.
There is a chance that you may have missed the deadline for this assessment task or the teacher may ask you to perform specific actions before you submit your assessment. Please follow up with the teacher to find out why you cannot see the Campus Pack blog, journal, podcast or wiki.
