The Operations, Telematics and Projects (OTP) department within the Centre for Learning Technologies (CLT) focuses on several services and projects that provide access to education based on learning technologies. With the Telematic Services offered, SU has provided students with greater access to higher education. The offering of Telematic Services enhances the virtual mobility of students who are geographically isolated from access to higher education. SU has also broadened students' participation in postgraduate academic programmes at the University. The services are also available to all lecturers and external parties.
The successes of the Telematic Services resulted in the expansion of this service to schools in the Western Cape and resulted in the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) Telematic Schools Project, in collaboration with Stellenbosch University's Centre for Learning Technologies.
The CLT provides a virtual learning space with live interaction and strong student support to postgraduate students through Telematic Services. Other services include the incorporation of multimedia in teaching and learning, and facilities for lecturers and other staff to make use of such services.
