UG 2021 Degree Finder – GatherContent training

We’re running training for colleagues involved in the update of the Undergraduate Degree Finder, to support our adoption of the GatherContent tool.

Why GatherContent?

The new GatherContent platform is intuitive and easy to use. This will help to reduce workload and make everyone’s lives easier. For example, colleagues can easily collaborate on edits – no more word doc tennis.


What do you need from me?

The GatherContent platform works by allocating ‘seats’. This gives specific users access to the system to make direct edits. Seats will be allocated by School to the relevant marketing or recruitment colleague usually responsible for collating UG content. So you will need to ensure that one person from your School is allocated a seat.

How does it work?

We’ve set up a training session on Thursday 21 November, 3pm-5pm. Tea, coffee and cake will be provided. Chris Charlick, from GatherContact, will be dialling in to demo the new process. Chris will also be on-hand to take any questions you may have.

Where/when is the training session?

The session will run in Room 3.24, St Leonard’s Land, Holyrood Road. It’s best to take the lift to the third floor (it’s very easy to get lost!) The training session is designed for people who have been allocated a seat.  We will finalise the list of seat holders at the session itself.

If you’re not sure whether you’ll be a seat holder or not, but you’d like to attend the training, you’re very welcome to do so.

Please ensure you have allocated a seat!

We do need to ensure that at least one representative is present from each School. So if it’s not clear yet who the final seat holder will be in your School, please do make sure that one representative attends.

Please direct any questions to
