New Students’ site
The new Students’ website was launched today. IRM are checking all Student Administration pages. Please note that requests to have redirection placed old students’ pages to go to new students’ pages have to be manually entered by the Web Services team and this may take some time. In the meantime, anyone going to an old page will most likely get a “Page not found” error until that redirection has been added.
On behalf of the Web Services team, we thank you for your patience and understanding.
Updates for live courses commenced last week for the 2016 Academic Year. Helen and Lesley have finished updating the relevant Majors blocks and have now started updating Minors. Updates of Courses will begin in the coming weeks.
We are running training for ad hoc requests by Faculty staff for Course Progression. We generally require that Faculty staff receive training before their access is granted. So far we have received positive feedback and are glad that Faculties are finding Course Progression a useful tool to monitor students’ progress.
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.
Student Connect Noticeboard
Changes to the Student Connect Noticeboard should also be submitted via the IRM Upload Request form. Please remember to visit the noticeboard regularly to ensure it stays current.
