In this article we will address some common questions you may have as a new or existing Matrix+ Online parent.
Does Matrix+ teach the same material as Matrix On Campus?
Matrix on-campus and Matrix+ teach the exact same content, we even use the same books for both courses. The only difference between our two courses is the how deliver our lessons. You can see a full comparison of both courses and their service offerings, here.

If they still cannot see your videos, please check if:
Are they logged in under their student account? Parents cannot access videos.
Where did they log in to? Students should log in via my.matrix.edu.au to view their enrolments.
Are they in Year 7, 8 or 11? They'll be using NEO for your Term 4 enrolments only. Ensure they have logged in via my.matrix.edu.au to access NEO. You can find NEO FAQs here.
Are you using stable internet and Google chrome? We suggest using the most updated version of Google chrome and a computer or laptop.
Why are my child's videos locked?
Lessons are locked to ensure that students are completing their courses in the order that we believe makes the most sense for their learning. If they need to skip ahead to some material, you can always click on the lessons and press the 'next' button, to skip ahead and unlock your preferred content.
If their Lesson 1 is locked, make sure they watch the course 'introduction video'!
