NEXUS is a website that provides online seminar registrations for School of Sociology and Social Policy modules.
NEXUS can be accessed from any computer with web access, however, a NEXUS account is required. These are created automatically for students taking modules from the School of Sociology and Social Policy. All other students should e-mail Pat Dakin to request an account.
USING THE NEXUS SYSTEM
Hopefully you will find NEXUS easy to use. Once you have logged on (at http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/sociology/nexus), you need to select the programme you require (undergraduate), followed by the module you want, and then the option you wish to access for that module (such as seminars). Throughout, the navigation system is hierarchical, with subsequent levels available by selecting from a combo box (drop-down list) and pressing "GO", and all previous navigation levels accessible by clicking on the appropriate link. For example, after selecting "Undergraduate" and "Computers In Business" you will see the following:
Above, pressing "GO" would take you to the forum for the Computers in Business module (or whatever other option you had selected from the combo box), whilst clicking on "Undergraduate" would allow you to select another undergraduate module.
ONLINE SEMINAR REGISTRATION
All module convenors in the School can opt to use NEXUS to facilitate seminar registrations for their modules. A module can have as many seminar sign-up lists as a module convenor requires, with students being able to add or remove themselves from seminar slots using the appropriate "Add" or "Remove" links. The "My Seminars/Workshops" link then provides a listing of all the seminar sessions for which a user has signed up.
Students and staff should note that NEXUS is a secure facility available on any computer with Web access. To ensure security please note that your NEXUS session will automatically be terminated after a short period of time, which may necessitate you occasionally having to reenter your username and password.
