Oh, go on, one more 360° photo: view from @NuffieldCollege’s (library) tower, ten stories above the #Oxford castle quarter.
Some day I might get around to writing e.g. a userscript and/or browser plugin that “fixes” the site – from a user’s perspective, at least. But for the time being, because this morning I needed to share via social media a link to a UX developer post we’ve just advertised, I’ve come up with a little bookmarklet to fix this single problem:
This tool makes it easy to get permalinks (web addresses you can save or share) for job listings on recruit.ox.ac.uk. It might be adaptable to make it work with other CoreHR-powered systems, if it turns out that this missing feature comes from the underlying software that powers the site: it could also form the basis of a future userscript that would automatically fix the site “on the fly”. Here’s how to use it:
If you have any difficulty with it or want help adapting it for use with other CoreHR systems, give me a shout.
A University of Oxford campaign to raise funds for teaching and research has raised £2bn, it has been announced.
The institution began raising money towards new scholarships, academic posts, programmes, buildings and facilities in August 2004.
The sum stands at £2,012,571,521 but the university has now set itself a new target of £3bn.
Vice-chancellor Professor Andrew Hamilton called the milestone “an outstanding achievement”.
The campaign has been touted as the biggest money-raising project in European university history.
