Version Control

Version Control has just gone live, so now is the time to show you what we have done. The main idea behind Version Control is to allow senior members of the colleges to have the ability to track and approve changes within both modules and programmes. Version control will also allow you to browse over the archive version changes that have been made over time. ┬áCommence the print screens….

To edit a module you would need to click on the “edit latest” button next to the relevant academic year.

This now takes you to the edit page of the module. After editing, the field changes colour to highlight that changes have been made and a hover over box shows you what was populated in the original text.

Once you save your changes and go back to the descriptor page, you can see a version of your module has been created. From this screen you can now browse through the previous versions you may have created, edit the latest version and if you are a super-user, approve any changes by clicking “publish”.

With the ability of creating versions, this now allows  senior members of staff to control the changes that are being made. To allow these versions to become approved and therefore view to the web they will need to be published. Only super-users of iPaMS have access to publish, which helps monitor the changes made within both module and programme descriptions.
