The Distance Education Initiative (DEI) programme will develop high quality Online Distance Learning (ODL) postgraduate programmes for a significant student cohort, and provide a high quality and flexible approach to study off campus.
The University student record system -EUCLID- holds information (as golden copy) about all the applicants/students, programmes and courses. Currently, EUCLID has ‘ODL’ flags at programme of study and student levels (i.e. application and student enrolment instances), which enable to identify applicants/students who are on an ODL programme. ODL in the Student Record project’s objectives are delivered via 2 phased projects.
The phase 1 project (DEI001) has laid the foundations for delivering services to online distance learners across EUGEX and IDM, as well as MyEd for new ODL applicants (http://www.projects.ed.ac.uk/areas/learn/dei/DEI001/index.shtml).
This phase 2 will address the following:
Collect and display the course ODL flag in the Student Record system EUCLID
Update EUGEX views and downstream systems classified as priority 1during the funding.
This project is carrying over from 2011/12, and all project information prior to August 2012 is available from
