Upcoming Changes to TheHub
In a few weeks, we will introduce the first changes to TheHub to move towards the BetaHub design developed working with students and faculty. Most importantly we want all faculty to understand that the changes you will see around April 1 are only the first step in a series of changes designed to help both students and faculty better navigate Hampshire’s unique academic program.
The navigation, or how you get around, has been vastly simplified. Instead of clicking from a long list of possible items, you choose what you want to see from a few simple tabs at the top: your Courses or your Advisees. Once you have selected a specific course or advisee, you can view details or take action such as sign a contract or write an evaluation.
Changes to Courses and Writing Course Evaluations
The content previously found under “Current Courses” and “Previous Courses” is all now located under the “Courses” tab. When you click on it, you are presented a list of current courses, but you can use the filters on the left to view any course (past, present or future). Moreover the course listing itself is will provide you useful information. The color-coding and format of the lines will quickly alert you that you have something to do (eg: write a missing evaluation, etc).
Changes to Advising/Div I/II/III
The content previously found under “Adivsor” and “Division 1-3” is now located under the “Advisees” tab. When you click on it, you are presented a list of current and prospective advisees, but you can use the filters on the left to view any advisee (past, present or future). Additionally, the advisee listing will provide visual indicators (both with symbols and colors) indicate if/when you have some action pending, such as a Div II or III contract awaiting your signature.
We will continue with a series of blog posts to update the status as we prepare to release these changes to faculty. Stay tuned for more updates shortly.
