See also FLO topic baseline, for guidelines on what students can expect to find as a minimum in a FLO topic site at Flinders University. The recommendations complement Flinders University Learning and Teaching Principles,with links to resources that provide information about how to implement each guideline.
What is 'WebPET'?
WebPET (Web Presence in Every Topic) aims to provide:
a coherent and flexible student-University interface
students with ready access to information which is timely, current and unambiguous
a base for further use of technology to enhance the quality of teaching and learning
minimum expectations of support - 'As a Flinders student I can expect…..'.
efficiencies for academic and support staff
And in addition:
a more widespread and consistent use of FLO
increased provision of online lecture recordings
increased use of online assignment submission
Students are generally happy with using FLO for their studies but have expressed their desire for more consistency across their topics.
What does it look like?
As a minimum, each FLO site has:
a topic links block (including links to topic information, library services, the SET system, a marks/grades tool, an email address lookup tool, and a link to staff and student help services)
a general discussion forum
an announcements forum and latest announcements block
