Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In today’s fast-paced modern business environment, higher education providers are trying to understand how they can better equip potential leaders with communication and leadership skills paramount for today’s workforce that would in turn support in the growth of its workplace. For this, some have developed, implemented and utilised different tools, techniques and facilities.

This research aims to gain a deep and thorough understanding of how ‘Virtual Learning Portals’ can enhance Torrens University’s postgraduate students’ employability, effective decisions making and organisational growth once they graduate. Overall, it is essential to understand how the utilisation of such virtual learning portals can cultivate communication skills, teach leadership traits, enhance employability, improve effective decision making and facilitate organisational growth. To achieve this, firstly, understanding the impact of virtual learning portals (e. g. OneCampus and Toastmasters International) gains significance.

Once, an in-depth knowledge of OneCampus and Toastmasters International’s effect on postgraduates’ leadership and communication skills is gained; then, the graduates’ perceptions on leadership and communication skills’ influence on their employability and effective decisions making will be studied.

The results of this research can help us to evaluate whether such virtual learning portals can enhance our graduates’ organisational growth or not. It further can support in modifying OneCampus if deemed necessary so that the overall employability of Torrens University postgraduates and organisational growth can be increased.
