Lightning Presentation


Room 4




The University’s academic and support staff are spending more time online than ever before. Our innovation team has worked closely with staff to maintain and deliver a collection of features, known as MyLO MATE, that augment and improve MyLO.

This tool is currently used by almost 1,500 academic and support staff within UTAS. One popular feature enhances digital connections between staff and students by making discussion content more accessible and improving the information displayed to staff.

With the features this tool offers, we aim to significantly improve how MyLO functions; and help academic and support staff accomplish more with their time with a simpler, more intuitive, and user-friendly experience.

This lightning presentation will discuss and demonstrate some high-impact features targeted at academic staff, as well as a few lesser-known quality-of-life tools. The development team are always keen to receive feedback and feature ideas for the tool.
