What’s occurring

Posted on October 30th, 2009 by Kirsty Adams

Well, on Tuesday I took a trip to the GCW top floor to discover where the posters for the wireless printing could be put. I think the idea is to introduce the wireless printing in short bursts so that if things don’t work out as planned it won’t be a huge blow and won’t have too many students complaining at once.

I don’t have a huge amount to report about work as I haven’t really been doing too much.
However, I have been asked to possibly give a 1-to-1 tutorial about Google Documents, which could be quite interesting and some good experience too.

Despite not much going on in work life, there’s loads going on in student life.
I have just signed up to be a part of the Lincoln Law Clinic that should be up and running again within the next week or so. I will be giving legal advice to some 15,000 people within the University, and those with links to the University. I have also signed up to something called StreetLaw, where I will have the opportunity to visit colleges and schools to give presentations on aspects of law.
Alot going on and hopefully alot going on the C.V. =D

P..P..Poor..Portal

Posted on September 25th, 2009 by Kirsty Adams

I discovered in my Introduction lecture on Wednesday that some tutors are not big fans of the Portal.

WHY??

Because its not simple!

But, the tutor did have a point. It is extremely hard to find things that you need. It all seems to be hidden within menus and links where you wouldn’t expect it to be.
It is especially difficult for tutors to explain to students where these useful things are hidden. This has stemmed from my tutor trying to explain to us where to find Regulations relating to the University and Assessments. 
It is a very helpful site, don’t get me wrong, its just the fact that it is hard to find bits and bobs.

Is there any way it can be made simpler?!

Oh and…where CAN I find the Regulations for the Uni??
