INFORMATION RESOURCES MANAGEMENT (IRM) SECTION

Course Browser

The Course Browser has now been restructured to align with the mid-year marketing campaign. New Discipline and Study Area level pages exist and these pages not only contain links to individual course pages, but also hold important marketing and promotional information intended to attract more students to ACU.

Handbook and Course Browser 2016 Cycle

IRM has commenced copying the course-related webpages within the Content Management System. Once complete, the 2016 version of the pages will be updated for both the Handbook and Course Browser, using the updated Faculty master files. All course-related updates for 2016 were to be finalised by 15 May.

Unit description and faculty staff updates can still be made up to 12 June.

Staff responsible for updating stakeholder files (General Information section of the handbook) also have until 12 June to finalise their updates for 2016.

Unit Descriptions

All Unit Descriptions have been entered into the SCADETL screen in Banner. The benefit of having unit descriptions 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. The process to enable these descriptions to be displayed in the handbook is almost complete.

Many thanks to both Ian Bray (Systems) and Tim Roberts (Web Services) for their valued contribution.

Course Progression

Phase 3 Course Progression courses that have been “Student Audit” tested and signed off by Faculties have now been migrated to the Production site. For a complete list of courses that are now available to students, please visit the Course Progression webpage.

The Course Progression team would like to thank all staff who have been involved in the testing and feedback of the Phase 3 courses. Your participation and enthusiasm has been greatly appreciated.  Many of your suggestions have been implemented in Course Progression, making it easier for staff and students to understand and navigate the software.
