With more than 60,000 hits since its launch earlier this year, the University intranet, KLIC, is now loaded with information for students too. Following a major promotional push, up to 2,000 staff and students are logging on to KLIC – short for Kingston’s Live Interactive Campus – every day. Editor Deirdre Hope is keen to encourage even more students to make the most of the University’s latest communications tool. “KLIC is packed with information to support them through their time at Kingston – from term dates and timetables to pointers about where to find the nearest cinema,” she said.
Developed by Kingston’s Marketing and ICT Services teams, the intranet has quickly revolutionised the way staff and students find out about what is going on around the University and in the local area. By the end of the year, users should even be able to log on to the site from terminals anywhere in the world. “Making KLIC a resource that can be accessed around the clock should really improve the Kingston experience,” Deirdre said.
Weda Hazara is a firm fan after becoming one of the first students to log on. “I was really impressed to find so much useful information at my fingertips and I’m sure I will use KLIC time and time again,” she said.
