This website contains audiovisual educational resources that will assist first-year students to orientate themselves around university academic life. The concepts driving the selection of content and design in general were “self-efficacy” and “student voice”.

It was produced in 336 hours. The tasks included: content development and research, video production, identification of interviewees and undertaking of participant interviews, instructional support of Student Learning Centre staff on development of online video versions of their face-to-face programmes, and basic visual design.
