What technology do you use?


I provide Admin support to the Bachelor and Master of Social Work programmes. In undertaking this role, I mainly use Blackboard, DMIS, and Agresso.

What are the advantages to using this technology?


DMIS really makes me understand how student records and information is stored and can be manipulated into a variation of reports. Blackboard is a fantastic platform as it allow me to communicate with students, set up online assignments and upload documents onto Blackboard.

What are the disadvantages to using this technology?


It can be a bit rigid at times and it needs more report options going forward.

Which training resources helped you in this work?


I find dealing with LTU@UCC.IE very useful as they supply me with information and I have also been on TurnItIn and DMIS training in the past.

Recommendations


Technology creates less footfall into the office. This means that in my role I can manage the tasks I need to carry out in my own controlled time frame.
