Agile Development

Our agile development team provides a rapid response approach focusing on either smaller development requests or supporting you with designing and developing online learning materials independently. The support is flexible, based on your needs without the structured timelines or deadlines associated with our scheduled projects approach.

However, since it’s first-come first-served, demand and response time can vary; we also cap the dedicated time for any single support request at a much lower level (typically 80 hours maximum), to ensure we can continue to help as many people across the university as possible.
