What is it?
EdLinked is the Faculty of Education's internal staff and student portal.
Once you're logged in EdLinked provides staff and students with access to a personalised list of papers, resources such as paper outlines, readings, podcasts of lectures, and access to University-wide services like password changing and viewing of grades. The University of Waikato promotes the use of Google applications like Google Drive and Google Calendar to help with group collaboration and assignment work.
Google Calendar can be used to keep track of assignment dates, lecture and tutorial times. Google Drive can produce Microsoft Office-like word documents, spreadsheets and even presentations.
The Faculty of Education's public website is accessed at http://education.waikato.ac.nz. It provides information on our academic programmes, faculty structure, points of contact and news and events.
