INFORMATION RESOURCES MANAGEMENT (IRM) SECTION
The Course Browser opened for mid-year admission on 1 April.
As a result of a mid-year marketing campaign, the Course Browser is currently being restructured. Once finished, new Discipline and Study Area level pages will exist and these pages will not only contain links to individual course pages, but also hold important marketing information to attract more students.
Handbook and Course Browser 2016 Cycle
The Handbook and Course Browser faculty files have been prepared for the 2016 cycle and are availablae for faculty staff to commence making all approved updates. The due date for completion of these updates is 12 June.
Stakeholder files have also been prepared and emails sent to relevant staff to advise them to make any necessary updates for 2016. The due date for these changes is also 12 June.
Over the past week, a lot of work has been done getting all unit descriptions entered into Banner (there are over 2000 active units). A huge thank you to Lesley for doing this rather tedious task of “copy-paste-save”. The benefit of having unit description stored in Banner (currently in the CMS) is that the same description can be drawn into both the handbook unit description pages as well as Course Progression. With the assistance of Systems, IT and Web Services staff, it is anticipated that this will be up and running in time for the release of Handbook 2016 in August.
Student and Staff training videos are currently being updated to align with the new way that student audits are presented. Additionally, the new presentation style has now been applied to all courses in the “live” PROD site from 2013 onwards. Many thanks to both Jon and Rachael for getting this work done over the past couple of weeks.
