INFORMATION RESOURCES MANAGEMENT (IRM) SECTION
The updating of all Course Browser and Handbook content for 2016 is well underway. There is still some outstanding content to be received as a result of the recent June Academic Board.
As we progress through our updating, we are endeavouring to ensure that every page, irrespective of whether or not there are any updates, complies with the accessibility requirements as per the following item.
Vision Australia recently completed an accessibility audit of the Students website at the request of Web Services. IRM team members attended a teleconference where the results of the audit were discussed.
The audit has provided several recommendations that should be implemented so that the Students site is more compliant. As a result, IRM will be reviewing all Student Administration web pages over the coming months (as time permits) and updating any pages/content to meet these recommendations.
To commence this review, the IRM team is incorporating this into the current update process for the 2016 Handbook and Course Browser pages.
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.
