Information Resource Management
Course Progression Project
All IRM staff are undertaking advanced DegreeWorks training from Tuesday 19 November through to Tuesday 26 November. These sessions are running from 8:30am to 12:30pm each day, so any work requests will be actioned in the afternoons.
So far, the training has been extremely valuable and has provided us with potential options for improving the delivery of the Course Progression application.
The Course Progression web page has now been made available and includes links to important information such as:
- the project overview
- pilot participants listing
- frequently asked questions
- user guides
- a video tutorial
- an online feedback form
We are currently working all issues that have arisen from the Phase 1 Course Rules Analysis and Student Audit Testing feedback. As each issue is actioned, the relevant Course Coordinator will be notified and asked for sign-off, in which case that issue will be closed.
Once all issues from Phase 1 have been suitably addressed, work will commence on the scribing of Phase 2 courses, namely the remaining undergraduate courses from the Faculties of Health Sciences and Theology and Philosophy.
If there are any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact the Course Progression team.
Content Management System (CMS) Upgrade
During the period 2-4 December inclusive, there is a scheduled upgrade of the CMS (aka the ACU website). This means that, although the web will still be available for viewing, no updates will be allowable. If sections have web updates that were scheduled to be made during this period, can you please submit them to IRM next week so that they can be actioned prior to the event.
No reporting statistics are available for the past week. As reported in last week’s issue, an incident has been lodged with Talisma in relation to this loss of reporting statistics and is currently being investigated.
