COMPUTER MAINTENANCE


 

THE IDEA

Students wanted to see computers across the campuses better maintained.

 

ACTION

  • A Student Voice Representative (Khalid Ali, SVR for Computer and Maths 18/19), wrote their SVR research project on software availability and this will be taken forward to the IT Department.
  • The Student Voice Team and the Education Officer will meet with the IT Department to discuss this feedback.

 

UPDATE

SEPTEMBER 11th

  • IT wanted to clarify that all students are able to contact them at any time with a computer fault. They can do so by calling 01443 482882 or online via their helpdesk
  • IT has developed an app which will allow students to use necessary software from any computer. They confirmed that this app was to be piloted this year and will be called UniApps. UniApps should help speed up computers are there will be less software installed on computers.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Students submit ideas during Change Week.

2. Teams of students gather to hack solutions to the biggest problems.

3. Teams pitch their ideas to a panel of University big wigs.

4. SU Officers and teams work with staff to make the ideas a reality.
