How will Elsie help me?
Elsie aims to be your one-stop-shop for daily information on your Curtin life. It pulls information on your student timetable, academic calendar, unit enrolments, contacts and assessments and presents it in an easy to use format at the tip of your fingers. We are continuing to develop the app and will be releasing new functionality throughout the year.
Plan your time
Better manage your learning/life balance through organisation of classes, assessment deadlines and personal events in your planner.
Access everything you need to know about your enrolled units, assessments, syllabus, pass requirements and other unit outline details all live here.
Get in touch with unit-coordinators, teaching staff and administration. Find contacts through your units, school of study or try a broader university-wide search.
Elsie Curtin was the wife of our 14th Prime Minister (and our University's namesake) John Curtin. She was an essential part of his journey in life and politics, and we hope the app will empower and support you in the same way.
Project Update - January 2017
The project released an update to the app stores in mid-December, which received an encouraging amount of positive feedback from students. The update contained the following new features:
- Students can search for and view building locations via a new Maps feature.
- Students can view how they are tracking with individual units throughout semester with unit progression.
- The "Blackboard Announcements" feature will make it easier for relevant staff to communicate with students in a way that is convenient and accessible.
The team is now working hard toward the next release. As always, we're reading your feedback and making improvements behind the scenes to ensure that elsie is able to make your time here at Curtin as productive as possible.
Please watch this space for more updates in the future.
