Nominate your subject
To have an LMS presence, your subject must be 'nominated'.
Your faculty or department LMS representative must nominate your subject using a specific request form. Please contact your LMS representative as soon as possible to arrange for subject nomination.
When can 2013 subjects be requested?
Subject nomination spreadsheets will be sent to LMS representatives in early November 2012.
Your faculty representative must provide the following information when nominating your subject:
- Subject code as shown in ISIS [eg: HIST11005_2013_SM1]
- First Name of Primary Coordinator
- Last Name of Primary Coordinator
- Username of Primary Coordinator
- Subject creation option (please select one of the following):
- Subject copy forward: Provide the exact subject ID of the source subject [eg: PHIL91005_2012_SM2]
- UniMelb template: Contains minimal content. Subject is fully editable
Optional information for subject nomination:
- Username of support staff
- Support staff role (coordinator, tutor, marker or designer)
- Cohort linking arrangements
- Provide the subject ID [eg: HIST11007_2013_SM1] of the (cohort) subject that is to be linked to the (primary) subject you are nominating.
What is cohort linking?
Cohort linking is useful for scenarios where the same content is delivered simultaneously in two subjects. Rather than construct and maintain two LMS subjects, staff can manage a single subject, which is accessible to students enrolled in multiple subjects. The primary subject and cohort subject(s) must be nominated in the correct order (in the nominations spreadsheet). For reference, the primary subject is the subject site in the LMS where teaching staff will deliver content, whilst cohort subjects feed their enrolments into the primary subject (and usually have either no presence in the LMS as a subject site, or are nominated as subject sites which are then set up to redirect students to the primary subject).
Can I see a list of subjects?
A list of subjects taught in the current teaching periods is available through the Subject and Community catalogue, which is updated approximately every 4 hours.
