INFORMATION RESOURCES MANAGEMENT (IRM) SECTION

Course Progression Project

Course Progression went live on Monday 26 May for those staff who were trained during Phases 1 and 2 of the project, and where the courses they are associated with have been “signed off” as complete. Students enrolled in these courses will be granted access to Course Progression in late June, via a link within Student Connect via the Faculty and AdvisorsStudent Menu link.

Further Information Sessions have now been given to additional staff from the Faculties of Health Sciences and Theology and Philosophy.

Phase 2 of the project has closed and we are still waiting for the remainder of the testing feedback for a number of courses.

The Course Progression web page includes links to important information including:

  • the project overview;
  • pilot participants listing;
  • frequently asked questions;
  • user guides;
  • a video tutorial; and
  • an online feedback form.

The majority of issues raised from the Phase 1 Course Rules Analysis and Student Audit Testing feedback have been addressed. These changes have been made in the new test environment. Accounts for Faculty staff have been set up in this new environment where they are able to review their requested changes for acceptance and sign-off.

If there are any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact the Course Progression team.

EF&S, Student Centre and IT Service Desk staff have now been trained in Course Progression, should they receive any questions from students and/or staff, once the application is released.

2015 Course Browser and Handbook

IRM will be finalising the updating of the 2015 Course Browser content this coming week (the majority of updates have been done, but we are still waiting on a couple of outstanding courses.

Updating of the 2015 Handbook content has commenced and should take 3-4 weeks to complete.

Faculty staff have been sent a courtesy reminder email that their Unit Description updates are due back by this Friday, 13 June.

Stakeholders have also been provided with the documents relevant to the General Information section of the Handbook. These documents are due back by Friday, 13 June.
