In 2010 the Innovation Department at GippsTAFE developed the Online Learning Help Guides. These are a range of help guides to assist students and teachers when learning and teaching online. The guides are presented as PDF documents and made available using a LibGuide.
The guides have proved to be a valuable resource providing teachers and students at GippsTAFE with easy to access information (no password required) using simple language and illustrated with screen shots. Having these documents centrally located means that documents can be readily updated when necessary to ensure users always have the latest information.
Recently a number of guides needed editing and on reloading into the LibGuide it was noted that the URLs for the individual documents were not preserved.
To overcome this problem it was decided to change the system and store all the documents on our server linking directly to them from the LibGuide. Now documents can be updated and their URL will remain the same ensuring easy access for users.
