Though technology has increased opportunities for students to study online, many students continue to complain of lack of time to study and learn. Using the concepts of clock time and network time, the project combines interview, survey and Australian Bureau of Statistics time diary results to investigate student use and perceptions of their available time to study and how the technologies used in online learning affect this. We concentrate on the amount of time students think they have when studying online, how much time they really use, and what affects this perception of time. Deakin University has specialised in distance education/online learning since its inception in 1974 and long time use of technologies and pedagogies allows widespread and diverse experiences for our students, both on campus and off campus. We study student cohorts of up to 1700 students studying in a single subject online learning space, and note that students in much smaller subject cohorts have similar complaints about time.
