Course Browser Updates

In conjunction with Systems and Web Services, the IRM team has been involved in preparing undergraduate courses to display transparency in admissions data by the end of August in accordance with Australian government requirements. The information will be visible via a new accordion field called “Admission criteria”.

All undergraduate courses in the Course Browser have a new accordion field called “Pathways to this course”. Course specific alternative entry options and adjustment factors to improve entry rank are listed to assist prospective students to gain admission to their course.

The “Eligibility” accordion field has been renamed to “Essential Requirements for Admission”.

Workplace Training

A big thank you to Emma Rainbow and Bethany Williams for the Workplace training provided on Wednesday to the team.  It was extremely helpful and much appreciated.

Course Coordinators Manual

All stakeholders have been sent a reminder email regarding their 2018 updates. The due date for updates is Friday, 18 August. The Course Coordinators Manual on the Staff website will be updated by mid-September in preparation for the 2018 re-enrolment period.

Course Progression

The IRM team will be trained in the new version of DegreeWorks (DW v5) over the coming weeks, commencing Monday 28 August. There will be a series of training sessions that will run for approximately 3 hours each morning.

We continue to work on any ad hoc Course Progression queries as they come in. We recommend course or unit specific queries (e.g. enrolment or grades) are sent to the relevant sections.

Please continue to send any user access requests to the Course Progression inbox.

For further information on the handling of Course Progression queries, refer to Course Progression Frequently Asked Questions, Common questions and troubleshooting on the Course Progression web pages on the Staff site.
