Session One Notes: Possibilities Of Interactive Student Handbooks

Session one was run by student president Christina Cover…

  • A big theme for this session is “campus connectivity.”
  • Discussion of print handbooks. Lots of frank comments from students in attendance from them.
  • Are handbooks written at too high a level? Who is the audience for them?
  • If an interactive handbook was made, a glossary would be useful.
    • Example: Students still use the phrase “guidance counselor” in college
  • A digital handbook needs to be heavily hyperlinked.
  • A call for digital handbooks to come originally from a group of students and then go “up the ladder.”
  • Digital handbooks could be “focus grouped” through different student communities.
  • Could there be a video instead of a student handbook or even a series of podcasts?
