Quality assurance - the A2A process
All UoS websites at the University of Sydney are checked for quality assurance before they are made available to students. This check requires the submission of an Application to Activate (A2A) online form. Submission of the A2A form is seen as confirmation that your UoS website is ready to be checked and made available to students at the beginning of the academic session. The A2A check ensures that the website contains current information. It is focused on making the website 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 or SUMO).
- Contact details for the coordinator. It can be helpful to include preferred office hours and preferred method of contact.
- 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. test availability and assignment submission deadlines.
Turnitin assignments should be recreated for each UoS website.
