CSSS team collaborates with CIECT: Creation of Online Environments [Student Support]

The CIECT Instructional Design team has assisted the staff members within the Centre for Student Support Services (CSSS) with the design and development of their niche online environments (department specific).

During online training sessions and consultations CSSS facilitators were familiarised with various content creation, assessment and communication activities within the online platform, iKamva.

Students are added to these online environments and are able to access the resources.

The following online environments were created:

  •   Learning Support 2021
  •   Office for Academic Support (OAS) Learning Hub 2021
