Up until recently I was listed as an RMIT Alumni with the resource ID, 22! Somehow this has changed to 225. Is this of any concern? It is to me and it should be for RMIT. Why? Two reasons.
- RMIT Alumni may use those links as reference, as we are encouraged to, to assist in job and applications, project proposals, etc… all of which I have done. When links change and people who will be affected aren’t notified, it is embarrassing to say the least to have potential project partners hit on dead links.
- I also like the number 22!
It concerns me, and it should others involved with the institution that is RMIT University, that quality control of such an important resource as their web site is not effectively monitored nor does it appear to be of relevance. Take their home page for instance…
As an institution that prides itself on its many schools of design, their home page breaks many basic design principles and does nothing to alleviate it above the rest of the swamp that has become higher education in this country.
