Accessing and Editing Unit Guides

The Unit Guide Generator will create a Unit Guide with information directly from the Course Administration Management System (CAMS), publish it and link it into a VU Collaborate Unit Delivery Space. The editing capabilities will cease once students have access to the unit delivery space one week before classes begin.

Staff will be required to log in at 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. 

Small changes to unit guides may be made by Conveners, Block Convenors, Block Key Academics and Block Instructors. Large changes must first be approved by the College Manager or Director of Learning and Teaching and altered in CAMS.

To access and edit a Unit Guide, follow these instructions:
