  • Hello and welcome!
  • A unified online presence for the University’s sites.Easier access to information Single Sign OnA platform for student engagement.Create a space for academic discussion Provide tools to enable communicationHelp staff and students organise and share information. Build a strong worldwide Alumni Network.
  • A content management system powers the Global Campusto enable all staff to create and maintain the websiteand ensure Global Campus can continue to grow.
  • MyWales is the student and staff portal at the heart of Global CampusOnce logged in, the Dashboard contains the latest featured content, academic articles, announcements, news and events.
  • Access to the academic social network is also centred around the dashboard. You can see the latest activity and posts from friends, colleagues, academic and social groupsUsers can post on each others personal noticeboards,Notifications allow you to receive email alerts instantly of new activity from your colleagues and groups.
  • Groups are central to Global Campus. Each institution and Award scheme has it’s own group, and Students are members of these groups automatically Each group has it’s own noticeboard where members can post comments, share links, and update each other. Each group also has a dedicated forum and a chat room.Anyone can create a Group. It can be private - invitation only, or public, open to all myWales users. The Group owner manages requests to join and invitations. They also manage the forums, membership and features available. Don’t need forums? You don’t have to have them in your group. Groups can be useful tools for learning – both for assignments, for classes to discuss a project outside the classroom, or in distance learning to co-ordinate a class.
  • Discussion forums are built into each Group automatically.They be used for academic discussion, class assignments, information exchange or just chatting.
  • Global Campus is integrated with Google Applications.Users receive an email address for life @my.wales.ac.ukYou can create, and share documents, spreadsheets and presentations from any computer with web access.Staff have access too, so sharing and collaboration is possible between course and seminar groups.You can see your latest email and documents from the myWales dashboard, at a glance. There are many uses for Google Apps in a learning environmentParticularly around group collaboration and learning
  • The redevelopment of Phase 1 (Phase 1.5) involves switching to an Open Source platform, Drupaland improvements to existing functionality.Phase Two will bring more new features and better collaboration features:Closer integration of Google Apps with myWales GroupsThe ability to easily create staff, student or group blogsIntegration with existing social networks such as FacebookVideo embedding in forums & noticeboard posts,Bookmark sharing, Allow file attachments to discussionsThe Virtual Graduate School.Any suggestions?
