The concept of ‘binge learning’ is gathering momentum, particularly among young people.

It was recently announced that Deakin University students would be able to ‘binge learn’ post graduate units, and from January will be able to complete units online at the pace that suits them. This means that they could complete an entire course in just a few weeks.

The deputy vice-chancellor Beverley Oliver said that in this age of digital disruption universities should be flexible with the manner they offer education to students and allow more choice, in a similar way to Netflix. This would allow the students to avoid waiting several weeks until the trimester is over, she said.
