Heads up: UNITS improvements and outage times

UNITS, the Unit Guide system, will soon become part of iTeach.

Exciting news!  From Session 2, Unit Convenors will use iTeach to publish their Unit Guides and activate their iLearn spaces.

In order to prepare for the upgrade, UNITS will be unavailable for staff this Friday (29 May) afternoon from 12.00 to 5.00 pm and Wednesday 4 June from 12.00 pm to 5.00 pm. Unit guides will still be available for students and staff to view but staff will not be able to log in to edit or update their unit guides during these times.

Why the change?
In response to feedback from staff, the new combined system will offer:

  • an easier to use, streamlined user interface
  • fewer steps in the Unit Guide publishing process
  • a mobile-friendly Unit Guide site for students and the public
  • time savings for Department staff

Further improvements are planned for the system this year, with the aim of making it easier for staff to manage their units.   

Stay tuned for further updates and training details.
