Adding Content

Create interactive and interesting content for your VU Collaborate space.

Using the Unit Guide Generator 

The Unit Guide Generator will now create your Unit Guide with information directly from CAMs, publish it and link it into your VU Collaborate Unit Delivery Space. The editing capabilities will cease once students have access to the unit delivery space.  

Staff will be required to log in to https://unitguides.vu.edu.au (or https://unitguides.vu.edu.au/caslogin) and enter additional teaching staff details and alter any further information. Once saved, the Unit Guide will be linked to the home page of the VU Collaborate unit delivery space; it is no longer necessary to be uploaded manually. 

To watch a short video on how to edit the Unit Guide, see the video below:
