A CSU standard template exists for all subject sites. Every faculty has a separate template, providing a unique banner and a set of icons in the faculty colours.
The video below demonstrates the key features of the subject site template.
The template provides consistent navigation, including organisation and grouping of tools into four sections on the left hand navigation. It also includes a section called 'Help for Academics':
A single 'hidden' tab on the left hand navigation is for offering advice to academics setting up their i2 site, including:
For all tools including student interaction.
All links related to the learning content and activities.
Note: Modules/Topics and Resources are not included as template items. These will need to be exported/imported from previous session.
Faculty banners and coloured icon sets are also included as part of the subject site template. The icons appear in the additional CSU support sections.
If you wish to utilise the icons into your learning content, you can access these from the right hand navigation menu on this page. The link will redirect you to DOMs where you can view all the different icons and then copy the URL of the icon that you wish to use.
The below images show the banners and one of the icons for each faculty.

In 2015, Julia Coyle from the Division of Students contacted Philip Uys, Division of Learning & Teaching, regarding a request emanating from students for consistency in i2 subject sites.
Following a series of meetings in 2015 and early 2016 with faculty representatives, as well as a period for wider consultation, it was agreed by the Executive Deans and the DVC (Academic) that a standard i2 template was necessary and that this should be based on the former Faculty of Business i2 template, already being used successfully in two of the four faculties.
A DSL implementation working party was set up in May 2016 to finalise the template, and facilitate its implementation. The members are Philip Uys (Lead), Carole Hunter, Lynn Flynn, Jonathan Wykes, and Dawn Calvert.
