RMIT University Library - Learning Lab

Updates April - August 2022



What is procrastination?

Procrastination is the act of delaying or postponing something that must be done because it seems difficult or unpleasant. We procrastinate even when we know there will be negative consequences.

Acknowledging and addressing procrastination with positive behaviour changes can form lifelong habits that will support success beyond your tertiary study.

A growing body of learning resources on the Learning Lab has been developed with the support of funding by the Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP). These materials aim to support the attraction and retention of students who identify as or are:

  • from regional Australia
  • from remote Australia
  • Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, or
  • from low SES backgrounds.

More accessible transcripts

We're changing our transcipt format from separate .rtf files to HTML on the page, right below the related media. This follows the advice of the W3C for best practice and should make accessing transcripts on the Learning Lab smoother and more enjoyable.

Take a look at the Academic Integrity page for just one example of an updated transcript.


Every maths page has now been generated with unique URLs, ready for revised HTML content. This help educators and students find content directly and reduces direct traffic to inaccessible PDFs


The Learning Lab has had a minor makover with new CSS styles to improve readablilty and consistency. 

The future

Exploration is underway for a future state for the Learning Lab. This includes migration of some content to RMIT's instance of PressBooks, a sharable open environment. 


All chemistry pages have been reviewed for language consistency.

Broken links

Any formerly broken links in the Learning Lab have been fixed. However if you find one in the future, please do let us know!
