Development for Trimester 1

Administrative/ Educational Development staff in the School have been working towards a deadline of pre Christmas for unit development for Trimester 1, 2012 to be completed.

There are still a few units with material outstanding and it would be great if we could have any outstanding material next week. We have around 15 units still to be ‘uploaded and completed’.

There are around 65 units being offered in Trimester 1, across the School. Of these, 4 units will be offered in Learning Studio. All units will be released to students on 06 February.

During January we will need to finalise units online in terms of updating eReserve links and (in some cases) assessment tasks and quizzes. Also, there are still a number of units which need to be reviewed prior to release.
