Australian universities, vocational education and some schools have 
already had to make arrangements for international students who have 
been unable to get to campus due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus travel 
restrictions. However, much more may need to be done in the coming 
months, with remote education provided to students across Australia, on 
a scale not seen before.

Individual educators need to become familiar with precautions to take to 
protect their own health, and that of their staff, so they are then able 
to help their students. Educators also need to learn remote education 
delivery techniques, in the event their students can't come to class. 
Also educators need to ensure they are equipped to work from home, if 
campuses are closed.
