In response to discussions about future ways of working, the CMVM College Registrar summarised the initial feedback in the document “CMVM future space use – hybrid working. Summary of initial campus feedback”.

MyEd and associated Portal Services already deliver a personalised experience: you get a different layout and set of services based on your role (staff, students, applicants and alumni) at the University. However, we believe further and better curation and targeting of content within the portal - based on personal and usage attributes - will increase engagement and reduce dissatisfaction. While our underlying services may stay the same, by understanding how and when our visitors engage with them, we can simplify and streamline interactions with them.

The aim of this project is to develop resources for supporting students as they transition to on-campus learning from hybrid modes. These cohorts may be new students who are joining the University from school where they experienced a mixture of classroom teaching, and online learning, plus a range of assessments which may not have included traditional exams.
