UniSA

Oh MyUniSA Student Portal, why do I hate thee? Let me count the ways.

IMAP Microsoft Outlook for Student Email

Whoever thought that was a good idea is insane. Not only does it limit native access to Windows users, but the web based Outlook is horrendously difficult to use, ugly and slower than molasses. And I don't care what anyone says, IMAP email that is stored on a remote server and has to be refreshed every time you do anything is not superior to POP/SMTP.

MyUnisa Slow as Molasses

Today to access the MyUniSA homepage after logging in took just under 2 minutes. On a weeknight it can be up to 7 minutes. This is unacceptable.

Enrolment Still a Pain

All the posters say that painful enrolment procedures are a thing of the past with their new internet enrolment system. Yeah, right. A counter-intuitive interface, the inability to see subjects as a grid before making final changes, and the dreaded "This subject you've chosen clashes with another you have already enrolled in". What a joke.

Believe me there's more, but I have real work to do now ;).
