Over the last year we’ve been working closely with staff and students to improve the way that the University presents information on shuspace, there will be better search facilities, a clearer layout and less clutter, so that students can more easily find the things they need when they need them.
Early in September, you’ll notice four new tabs:
- Learning Essentials will present resources and information that support students’ learning
- University Life covers every day student life, from sport to finance, from campus maps to shucards
- My Future will bring together information to help students make the most of their time at Sheffield Hallam to direct and plan their careers
- and Help and support will provide easy access to student support services and information
My SHU will still be the tab that students see first, and continue to give them access to key services including Blackboard sites, email, library services, timetables and My Student Record.
Information will be more purposeful, and written and presented for the student perspective. In addition, navigation and search tools will make it much easier for students to locate specific pieces of information.
Over the next year we’ll be continuing to work with students and information providers to refine these changes.
Towards the end of August you’ll be able to see what the new layout looks like, and there will be resources for you to use that show students how to get the best out of shuspace.
If you need to direct students to specific pieces of information, please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll advise you on the best way to go about it.
