SINU launches free student email system and handbook
FOR the first time, Solomon Islands National University (SINU) is offering a free students’ email system and has published a university handbook.
These milestone achievements of the country’s national university were officially launched yesterday at the university’s conference room by Pro Chancellor and Chair of the SINU Council, Hon Dr Culwick Togamana MP.
The ICT Manager Mr Kevin Maitava explained that registered students of SINU can use the link: https://mail.sinustudents.edu.sb to access the students email system.
The service can also be accessed from any network PC, tablet or smart phone from anywhere outside SINU campus after the initial setup.
A student must be formally registered in the ‘Technology One’ Student Management System to access the student email system and unregistered students will be automatically denied access by the system.
Pro Chancellor and Chair of SINU Council Hon Dr Culwick Togamana who launched this new Students Email System explains the importance of having this system.
“Now students can communicate with lecturers, Deans directly. The Library can communicate with students and vice versa. Library can inform the students about arrival of new books and journals.
“Library will remind students on due date of submission of borrowed books,” Hon Togamana said.
Recently, SINU Library acquired 10,000 hard copies of books and 15,000 e-copies of books and journals.
Acting Vice Chancellor Professor Basil Marasinghe was happy that from now on, the management can directly communicate with students.
“Students too can voice their opinion, and suggestions to the management,” Acting VC Professor Marasinghe said.
The SINU handbook was also launched by Pro Chancellor and Chair of the SINU Council Hon Dr Culwick Togamana and he commended the staff and management of SINU for the achievements.
He went on to say that this handbook consists of details of University Governance, Council and important committees of SINU.
It also consists of a good description of all the 5 schools including details of academic programmes and staff.
