The launch of MyTimetable is fast approaching with all colleges and schools having access to complete their class allocation activities on 20 June prior to students gaining access to allocate into their Semester 2 classes on 11 July.
MyTimetable aims to improve the overall timetabling and class allocation experience for both students and staff. For students, it will allow a simple, fast student-facing timetable updated in real time which will enable easily navigated, student-managed class allocation processes and waitlist requests. For staff, they can expect a major decrease in their administrative tasks for student timetabling as MyTimetable will allow for easier changes to classes and cohorts as well as streamlined allocation and waitlist processes.
The Class Allocation Project in conjunction with the Timetabling Team are closely working with and training the nominated implementation coordinators from each of the colleges and schools in order to ensure they are fully prepared and supported upon the launch of MyTimetable. A full list of these implementation coordinators can be found on the MyTimetable Implementation Team page
All users, including course conveners, will be supported with access to a suite of training and support resources to ensure they are prepared to use the system by Semester 2. The Class Allocation Project team is on schedule to provide the following training and support starting from mid June:
- Drop-in sessions for student and school administration staff which will provide the opportunity to ask questions from your local super users and the timetabling team
- Access to detailed User Guides, Quick Start Guides and Self-Serve Training Videos
- Support for students and student-facing support staff with access to the student-facing support materials on the MyTimetable website.
