With regards to the layout- now upon login students will find news pertaining to AIU and the academic world in general. Below this is a section titled- “Art to Mirror Life” which displays Classical Art created by world renowned painters. Next is a videoconference providing instructions on how to access and use the millions of reference materials in the AIU Online Library. The Videoconference and topic discussed will be changed periodically by AIU. Below the videoconference is an area that provides access to RSS feeds. RSS feeds update constantly bringing up to the minute news- relevant to the academic world and AIU. In addition- a translator tool has been added to enable the translation of any text to the language of your choosing instantly. Finally- there is a new area titled “The Universe Close at Hand” which displays various pictures of our universe taken by satellites and telescopes.
New components and features in the AIU Online Student Section:
– AIU news
– Art Gallery
– RSS news feature
– Translator Tool
– Universe Gallery
In essence- the idea and the concept of these additions to the Online Student Section is to provide tools- not only academic and professional in nature- but also culturally stimulating- in order to remain receptive of new ideas to enrich our lives. We hope these additions will be stimulation- appealing and utilized for their inherent benefits by AIU students.
