Request a New website

Once you have logged in to SEAMS you can request a website. There are three types you can request:

  • Uos website
    A curriculum resource for one or two uos cohorts for a specific academic session. Automatically enrols the uos code into your website.
  • Generic website
    A curriculum resource for three or more uos cohorts or a program cohort, or the website is a curriculum resource and not associated with a particular academic session.
  • eCommunity
    A website to provide resources or support students in contexts not related to specific units of study. eCommunities cannot to be used for assessment.

Request a uos website based on the default template

Unit of study websites are based on a default template provided by Sydney eLearning. This automated process takes 15 minutes to create a uos website in the University LMS.

Uos website copied from your previous uos website

You can request a new website that is a copy of one of your existing websites. This will reduce your website development time, as your new uos website will be a copy of your previous uos , i.e. containing the existing teaching and learning material and tools, but without the previous student data.

To do this, you need to select the website you wish to copy as the template.

  1. Choose 'My current sites' under the template drop-down options. You will see a list of the last two years of sites you have requested and/or coordinated.
  2. Choose the website you wish to copy. Submit the online form as above.

Request a generic site

The process is the same but you need to chose the link for 'generic' website. These sites are not automatically generated. We advise you contact the Sydney eLearning helpdesk to discuss setting up generic sites and we will request a site for you manually.

Request an eCommunity

eCommunity sites are not automatically generated. Please contact the Sydney eLearning helpdesk to discuss the settings for your eCommunity. You can request an eCommunity based on an existing eCommunity, but you cannot base a new eCommunity on a uos website. There are more details about generic sites and eCommunities under the tab above titled 'Managing your eLearning'.
