DT265A Year 2 venue update

Hi folks, 
Please note that the DT265a Stage 2 timetable has been updated and that modules for Data Analytics and Programming for Mobile and Smart Devices will now be delivered in a Bolton Street location. 

Please see the updated version of the timetable attached to this email .

Please also note that as with previous years, the Data Analytics module is delivered intensively over 8-9 weeks with 6 hours per week. However since this is the first year that the content is being delivered to part-time students, the delivery will be split between a standard 3 hours of lectures and 3 hours of blended learning delivery. This should allow students to focus on content and also avail of online support from the teaching staff for the module. More detail on this will be presented at the first DA lecture which will take place on Wednesday evening in room 392 in Bolton Street. 

Small adjustments to the timetable may yet come through. Please keep an eye on your email and the DT265 blog for details.

DT265A Second Year - Update Re Requests for Confirming Registration

Hi folks,
This is for students in the second year of the part-time Higher Diploma, i.e., for people who started in September 2016. In the Programme Committee meeting yesterday, some of your class reps noted that they have received requests to confirm their funding through ICT Skills Springboard, but they have no way of doing so.

Coincidentally, we also received an email yesterday from the HEA that acknowledges that the are currently working to update the springboard website to allow students in second year of the part-time Higher Diploma to confirm their registration for second year. This however is not implemented yet. The funders have specifically asked that students not be required to verify their funding yet, but it will take a while for this message to DIT and others to work through the system.

I will contact Admissions and Fees to make sure they understand about the situation, so don't panic if you are receiving requests for fees or something along those lines.

DT265A Higher Diploma Part Time - First Registration Requirement

This email is for all active Higher Diploma students.

To the full-time students who started in January, please note that if you haven't done so already, you need to *urgently* log on to the springboard courses website to confirm your continued registration on the programme, i.e., re-registration. Most students have done this; thank you. 3 students are left to do this.

To the part-time Higher Diploma students who started last month, the HEA have now opened the springboard courses website for you to confirm your first registration for the programme. You need to confirm this registration so that the HEA will pay your fees. Confirming this registration is a condition of the programme; and failure to do so will leave you liable for your own fees.

To confirm registration, you simply need to log in to the springboard courses website and click the registration button.

Closing date for this will be the 27th of October, but please do it now. It only takes a minute or two and will save you an awful lot of grief should you forget.

Class reps, as it information is important, I would appreciate it if you also posted this on any Facebook or WhatsApp groups etc.
