Digital Course Outlines
The Digital Course Outline website provides detailed and timely information to assist students in their selection of courses.
Teachers can visit: www.courseoutline.auckland.ac.nz to view and edit their Course Outlines.
Dr Lindsay Diggelmann (Associate Dean for Teaching and Learning – Faculty of Arts) outlines the benefits of Digital Course outlines and how to complete them.
If you are facing technical issues with the DCO platform, please raise a ticket with Staff Service Centre on ext. 86000 or +64 9 923 6000 or log a ticket on the staff portal.
If you notice incorrect information within a DCO that you are unable to edit (e.g., course title, course prescription, points, pre-requisites etc.), these fields are not editable because they must go through an amendment process since they are published to the calendar. To have these changed, please follow the amendment process described by the Academic Programmes Office.
