Course Management System

All versions being retained and tracked in the CMS.

As well as academic approvals, the CMS is also used to manage the approval processes and workflows of fees for all units. The CMS interfaces with the Callista Student Management System and publishes and provides reports on academic offerings and fees to the Commonwealth Government, the Reach Your Potential website, the TISC book for all final year school students, and marketing prospectuses. It also publishes the ECU Handbook website.


Once trained, staff can request access to the CMS by completing an 'Access Request to Course Management System' form.
