Flinders Online Collaboration User Space (FOCUS) is an online shared work environment using FLO (Flinders Learning Online). The spaces can be customised by Flinders staff members and include a range of collaborative tools as well as the usual FLO tools.

The spaces are a place to store, share and work on content with collaborators, anywhere, anytime, on any device.
