Valid from: Monday 8 July 2024 to Friday 12 July 2024


** The countdown is on! In just ONE-week vUWS sites will swing open their digital doors to welcome students. This means it’s time to gear up for the upcoming Spring session, which kicks off in TWO weeks! **

Need some help? Check out our weekly checklists we created to ensure your site is ready for the start of session.

Your tasks for the week:

- Check that all required site menu items are available and not hidden (https://lf.westernsydney.edu.au/learn-vuws/#content-visibility).

- Check the Learning Guide is clearly accessible and available (https://wsu.service-now.com/staff?sys_kb_id=67ceb0ac9752f910c4ed7da6f053af6f&id=kb_article_view&sysparm_rank=4&sysparm_tsqueryId=4c6fc39897dc061466ea3c4ef053af87)

- Post a welcome Announcement for the first week and provide clear instructions to students on how to get started (https://lf.westernsydney.edu.au/learn-vuws/#announcements).

- Update your contact details and other key university contacts that may be listed on the site (https://lf.westernsydney.edu.au/learn-vuws/#links).
