Rabbi

Hi, I'm MD Rabbi (he/him) and I'm your VP for Education and Deputy President for the 2021/22 academic year. I am an international student from Bangladesh studying Accounting and Finance at LSBU. I started my journey with the Students' Union in 2018 by being elected as an International Students' officer, Course Rep for three years in a row, and your VP Education in the 2020/21 academic year.

I am passionate about you, your voice, your campaign.

    Wider IT Issues

    Current
    • President

    What's the big idea?

    Why is it that we have so many places that we have to log on to? The VLE (moodle), the timetable, myLSBU, the results page, email. The accommodation portal if you live in halls. Your staff account if you're a student employee and my workplace. Plus, many more course-specific pages. It's understandable that there may be a few places to log in, but a minimum of five, really? Especially when most of these are LSBU based. We're now going through the IT crisis, and our current IT system isn't even good! Why can't we build back better from this and establish something that allows for a more streamlined student experience?

    How will it benefit students?

    The university needs to take a serious look at this and recognise how much of an inconvenience this system is for modern-day students. We need to explore several options and consider a larger Virtual Learning Environment where everything is accessible and that your timetable, emails and assignments can be viewed side-by-side. We need to consider launching an app that at least delivers the core functionality of the system.
