Course Progression Project
IRM is receiving and dealing with issues from both Course Coordinators and Student Centre staff on behalf of students who have queries relating to their individual student audits.
On Tuesday 15 July, Course Progression went live for students who are enrolled in courses that were scribed (and signed off by the faculty as complete) during Phases 1 and 2 of the project.
Students enrolled in these courses have been granted access via a Course Progression link within Student Connect.
Course Progression is also available for those staff trained during these project phases via the Faculty and Advisors – Student Menu link within Student Connect.
A Course Progression web page is now available on the Students web site. This web page provides more detailed information for students and contains links to the following reference material:
- Student User Manual
- Frequently Asked Questions
- Video Tutorials
This student web page also contains a link to the staff web page (login required), which contains the following additional information and links:
- the project overview;
- courses included in “Go Live”;
- Frequently Asked Questions;
- Staff User Manual;
- Video Tutorials; and
- an online feedback form.
If there are any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact the Course Progression team.
Feedback for a number of courses from Phase 2 of the project is continuing to be received – thank you to those who have done this.
