Before we start, let’s give thanks....
As a brand new and exciting innovation to the Victorian Education system, the Ultranet is still somewhat of an elusive and mysterious beast. Before long, as you become more familiar with it, it will become more like your domestic pet dog – good to have around and ever reliable! Before we get started today, we would like to gauge a few of your basic understandings of the Ultranet and what it offers you and your school. The following quiz will help us to do this........ A quick Ultranet Quiz
Outline of today’s training
Questions, likes & ideas Throughout the day, use the form from your folder to record any questions you may have, things that you like or ideas that you might have about the use of the Ultranet.
To help you to develop some basic familiarity with the Ultranet, we would like you to complete a small ‘treasure hunt’. At the end of any treasure hunt, there is an abundance of fantastic riches awaiting the person who gets there first. Except with this treasure hunt. You will only be getting a chocolate bar. But please give it your best shot anyway! Work through the sheet in your folder and find the answer to each of the prompts. It will help to develop a basic understanding of the navigation and appearance of the different spaces within the Ultranet. Ultranet Treasure Hunt

Collaborative Spaces are available to teachers and students. The person who creates the space is the owner and moderator. Any student who sets up a space needs a teacher to approve it and moderate before it becomes live. Collaborative Spaces
Moderator Role All online spaces MUST have a moderator whether set up by staff or students. Only staff can be moderators. If you set up a space, you automatically become the moderator of that space. Moderators are responsible for reviewing content in a space regularly to check its appropriateness. To support this process, all members of the space are able to flag inappropriate content for moderation. This will result in an email being sent to the moderator who can then review the content and take appropriate action.
There are a range of applications (or portlets) available which can be added to any pages or spaces within the Ultranet. Applications
What makes a good space?
There are a few issues that need to be considered regarding the use of the Ultranet within your school. Some of these issues may require the development of some policies or protocols to ensure consistent practices across your school. Issues to consider
