What do I need to do?

Before you begin, make sure you can log into both SEAMS and the University Learning Management System (LMS).

Remember, with SEAMS you can:

  • create a website
  • allow access to a website for colleagues, tutors or auditors
  • check start dates, end dates and enrolled cohorts for a website

To actually develop the content of your website you need to log into the University LMS.

Follow the steps in the chart below to navigate a website's workflow.


Complete site development in the University LMS

To develop content you must log in to the University LMS. Once inside your website you can add content; add collaboration tools and/or assessment items; and perfect your own layout and navigation. If you are not sure how to use the tools or add content you can attend a workshop.


Submit your Application to Activate (A2A) in SEAMS by the deadline

  1. An 'Application to Activate' or A2A must be submitted, processed and approved for your website before your students will gain access.
  2. To submit an A2A you must log in to SEAMS.
  3. To ensure your A2A is approved before the date required take note of any announcements and emails from Sydney eLearning, specifying the deadline.
  4. For information about the quality assurance process and the A2A form, please look here.

Maintain your site in the LMS

During semester you will probably modify your uos website. Some typical tasks include posting announcements, adding new content, accessing the grade centre and moderating discussions.


SEAMS will Archive your site

Every uos website is active for a specified teaching period. You can check your website date settings in SEAMS. You will be automatically notified one week before your site reaches the access end date (when students will no longer see the site) and then again when the site reaches the archive date (when instructors will no longer see the website). You can ask the helpdesk to make your website visible again at any time after the archive date.
