Setup almost complete

The unit website now has a short URL: http://bps.ucniss.net

We're now finalising the line up of lectures, guest talks, and panels, and that will be detailed in full on the website under Schedule. The schedule is in a Google Calendar, so you should be able to import it into your own calendar from there.

We're also putting the finishing touches on the Unit Outline, which is the official document that enrolled students use to understand what is required in the assignments, and how they will be assessed.

We'll then set up the Journal page, which is where the assignments eventually get posted.

The Moodle site (the website that University of Canberra students use the manage their full course program), has been stripped down to a bare minimum. We want to create an authentic experience for unit, based on the conference presentation and journal publishing professional experience. This website then, becomes the unit and conference website, and the assignments (an essay and a presentation) are for that conference, and are published in the journal for that conference.
