All courses, excluding Higher Degree (HDR) courses are to have a course site in Interact 2. Course sites are to be requested by the Course Director or Course Coordinator. Student membership will be automated and based upon current student enrolment; other staff can be added manually by the Course Director as required. Once a site has been created, the site structure can be edited and adapted from the basic template to suit the needs of the course. The site will not have a specific life-cycle, but will continue until it is no longer required.
New course site requests or modifications need to be submitted to the DIT Service Desk. The request needs to be authorised by the Course Director or Course Coordinator. This will be validated using the Academic Course and Subject Entry System.

|Course Site Name||The name has to be below 50 characters.||Bachelor of Information Technology||
