Submission and Return of Student Work
IT issues at Submission:
If students have any IT issues with submitting assessment tasks, they should in the first instance take a screen shot of their computer, ensuring that the screenshot includes date and time of error, and all other necessary information. Students are to then contact ITS Helpdesk on 5327 9999 and log a job. Once an IT Job Ticket Number has been provided, students are to email this to course coordinator. It is a student's responsibility to save their assessment tasks and to back up their files. Students will not be granted extensions unless drafts of assessment tasks can be provided and documentary evidence is provided, where major IT issues have occurred.
