Getting ready for Semester 2

We're gearing up to deliver a better experience and some exciting new developments for Semester 2.


A key focus is provisioning over 100 new Learning and Teaching software requests we’ve received, making sure they’re ready and tested for the semester start. We’re also committed to adding new applications to myDesktop. With 213 applications already available, usage has increased 50 per cent this semester compared to the same period last year. At this rate we’re expecting 50,000 students and staff to log in and make use of these apps in 2015.

And in a first for RMIT, we’ll be piloting a new online, self-help peer support platform. This moderated community forum will be a place where staff and students can share their collective knowledge, find answers and discuss everything about the IT experience at RMIT.
