INFORMATION RESOURCES MANAGEMENT (IRM) SECTION
New Students’ site
As mentioned in last week’s newsletter, the IRM team worked on checking and resolving any issues with hyperlinks as well as looking at and recommending changes to the presentation of pages where necessary. The work relating to hyperlinks included checking and updating external applications such as Student Connect, AskACU and Knowledge Manager as well as the public and Staff websites.
The majority of this work was finalised earlier this week, but we are receiving the occasional request to resolve similar issues with links to missing pages/documents. These are being resolved as and when they are received.
Helen and Lesley are continuing to update live courses for the 2016 Academic Year.
We continue to run ad hoc training for Faculty staff for Course Progression as and when required. We generally require that Faculty staff receive training before their access is granted.
Accessibility audits of the public, Staff and Students website were undertaken by Vision Australia at the request of Web Services.
These audits provided recommendations that are being implemented so that all sites are more compliant. As a result, IRM is reviewing all web pages under our jurisdiction and updating any pages/content to meet these recommendations.
When submitting work requests, please use the IRM Work Request Form and ensure that the wording complies with the Student Administration Style Guide located in the All Student Admin section of Knowledge Manager.
Changes to Student Notices should also be submitted via the IRM Upload Request form. Please remember to visit the Student Notices.
