Faculty change

Academic Unit admin panels in eFolio will be updated next week to reflect the new Faculty structure.  Where new Academic Units are created that differ from existing ones, it is likely that administrators will need access to a new admin panel in eFolio, and that department web links and documents set up in the admin panel will need re-adding.

Please raise a Serviceline ticket if you need help with this.

Syllabus issue fixed

eFolio modules include code that automatically pulled details of the syllabus and displayed it on the Syllabus tab. The problem was that the code linked to Syllabus Editor, which has been replaced by Curriculum Manager, and that meant that users would be viewing out-of-date details that did not apply to this year’s modules.

Speedy work by the Enterprise Content Management Team in iSolutions has resolved this issue, and all modules now show a link that will take users directly to the latest syllabus details.

Staff access to eFolio modules/tutee information

Staff listed as instructors for a module in Banner should be able to access the corresponding modules in eFolio. Please be aware that modules have been taking longer than usual to appear in eFolio, so you may need to wait a number of days after the Banner record has been updated. Update: This issue should now be resolved.

Blackboard’s new Class Photo Roster tool allows you to view photos of everyone registered on your module.

Tutee updates in Banner may similarly take a number of days before appearing in eFolio.
