Administrator: Social Work Programmes
I provide Admin support to the Bachelor and Master of Social Work programmes. In undertaking this role, I mainly use Blackboard, DMIS, and Agresso.
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.
It can be a bit rigid at times and it needs more report options going forward.
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.
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.
