Are you busy preparing new equipment for the next academic year? University technicians across the country are getting ready for the next student intake, making sure that technical resources, studios and rooms are ready for use.
It’s the kind of hard work that really pays off when you know the new resources you’re preparing will be put to good use. But how can you make sure that’s the case?
Joe Smith is a Creative Industries student who turns up for classes in September and knows nothing about the new departmental resources you’ve been preparing. How will he find out about all the exciting new kit? When he next stops by the checkout desk? Or maybe in class, when the next assignment is set? And when he is told about it, how will he remember all the details?
With an online system like connect2, Joe can see for himself:
- The latest details on the range of equipment available for loan
- What he’s authorised to borrow and how long for
- How to book it, where to collect it from and where to return it to
With the help of connect2, your hard work processing new inventory will automatically lead to good awareness of what’s available, in turn increasing usage. An online showcase and booking facility maximises the benefits of introducing new inventory to relevant students and staff, giving them every opportunity to handle and try out what’s available.
