Sentinel|9 is an Australian academic content and curriculum provider offering innovative blended, online and face-to-face higher education resources. We specialise in the development of micro-credentials, elective subjects and complete courses with business ready subjects.
Our strategy aligns with the goal outlined by Minister for Education Dan Tehan,“to be prepared for more focus on offshore, online and blended learning, and a growth in new models of delivery – such as micro-credentials”
Sentinel|9 content can be delivered at an exceptional quality, that can be transplanted to any platform, education institution or organisation around the World. Further, Sentinel|9 has the support of the Australian Government, through the Accelerating Commercialisation (entrepreneurs programme).
And like the rest of Australia, Sentinel|9 is “ready to seize future opportunities by charting a path for the international education sector for the next 10 years across education, research and training.”
See the Minister’s plan for international students in 2021:
These goals match the plans by, “the Council (Council for International Education) (as it) is also looking at longer term strategies, commencing consultation on a new Australian Strategy for International Education, led by its expert members from February 2021, with delivery of the new strategy expected mid-year.”

A New Learning Mode
Following a worldwide survey of local and international students about their study experiences during COVID-19, i-graduate found that while blended learning is still the preferred option of local and international students in the future:
“While more than half (55%) of the local student respondents and close to half of all international students (47%) said they would like online lectures to continue once on-site studies resume, support for continuing other online activities was low,”
International students temporarily restricted offshore, with visa issues, can be supported with Sentinel|9’s Australian TEQSA compliant blended educational content that includes: filmed lectures; powerpoint slides; workbooks; course outlines; subject mapping; assessments; and marking guides. We can design new content around student demand for new courses.

Here at Sentinel|9, we also apply the “new HEI global measures” of international collaboration to our development of content and curriculum as we:
- Help develop staff skills in international relations.
- Link learning to workplace life and intercultural development.
- Improve internationalisation strategies.
- Assist to produce global graduates.
See these measures outlined in a recent i-graduate webinar:
