Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Students should keep a copy of all assessment items that are submitted at least until unit grades have been published at the end of semester.
Special assessment requirements
In order to pass this unit, students have to obtain a mark of 50% or greater for the assessment as a whole, and 50% or greater for the examination. Higher grades will be awarded on the basis of the total mark being ≥ 65% for a credit, ≥ 75% for a distinction and ≥ 85% for a high distinction. Some scaling of marks and academic judgement may be applied to determine students' final grades - in this process no student will be disadvantaged.
In the case of any assignment that places you in jeopardy of a Fail in the whole unit, appropriate moderation procedures will be used.
If there is any doubt with regard to the requirements of any particular assignments or assessment procedure, the onus for clarifying the issue rests with the student who should contact the unit convener about the matter.
All work quoted from any source should be appropriately referenced using the "Harvard" referencing style as described in the link below (note that there are multiple versions of the Harvard referencing style, and you should use the one described here).
Students who are not familiar with referencing academic work should undertake the Academic Integrity Module.

Attendance at classes is not compulsory but it is advisable for students to attend as many classes as possible. Students should also be aware that the subject will be examined on material covered in classes, including workshops, and it is the individual student's responsibility to ensure that they are sufficiently familiar with this material. Attendance at classes is one of the best ways of ensuring this familiarity. Do not make the mistake of assuming that the materials provided online perfectly substitute for class attendance.
Announcements are made throughout the unit, typically to clarify requirements for assignments and other matters as required. Any such announcements will be made using your student email account and/or placed on the unit web site. Such announcements are deemed, within two working days, to be made to the whole group. Announcements made at an organised session are deemed to be made to the whole group.
Required IT skills
Corporate Strategy and IT Governance is an advanced level unit and it is generally expected that students will have some background in their knowledge of IT related matters. Students should also possess the ability to use a word processor for the production of assignments and various on-line searching tools from the Internet and the library to undertake various assignments in the unit.
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
