Quality assurance - the A2A process
All uos websites at the University of Sydney have a quality assurance check before they can be accessed by students. This check requires the submission of an Application to Activate or A2A. Submission of the online A2A form is seen as confirmation that your uos website is ready to be checked and released to students. The QA check ensures that the website contains current information. Our A2A check is focused on usability and clarity for students.
You can help facilitate the A2A process by making sure that your website is ready for your students and all information in the UoS website has been updated. A website is ready for students when it contains as a minimum:
- A uos outline document or link to an online version of the uos outline (e.g. a html document or database such as CUSP).
- Contact details for the uos coordinator. It can be helpful to include preferred office hours and preferred method of contact for students contacting lecturers/tutors.
- All links to external resources must be current. No Page 404 errors .
- Copyright notice and links to ICT and eLearning Help are in the website. These are part of the default uos template.
In addition please check that all dates are correct for the current semester, e.g. quiz availability and assignment submission deadlines.
