  5. 5. Feedback - Staff <ul><li>“ Fantastic site for Fine art, we use it all the time and it has enabled us to go paperless in the department.

They can view the calendar and choose particular forms of teaching offered to suit their needs and developments. This is very clearly laid out and the calendar lets students plan in advance. They get notified of any teaching they sign up for and again attendance has markedly improved.” </li></ul>
