  • Hi Diane, is there any way for students to suscribe to The Insider by e-mail? Thanks, Bethany Tynes, AUSU VPEx

  • Hi Bethany:

    The only way that students have access to The Insider is through the Landing. But please feel free to make use of any information in The Insider to pass on to students.

  • Thanks very much. Is there any chance that an e-mail subscription or other notification might be a possibility in the future? I think The Insider is great, and would love to see more students reading it, but am concerned that there are a number of students who, though interested in the content, might not necessarily remember or want to check the Landing site regularly.

  • Hi, Diane-

    As I said to Patrick when he launched the new form, I don't want to clutter up my hard drive with extra pdf's.  I want to read the insider on line.  Is this possible to re-implement, to make the pdf download OPTIONAL and have the availability of the insider on line.  I really haven't read it since I realized I couldn't just glance at an article of interest but had to download the whole thing, figure out where to store it and or make sure I deleted it from my hard drive.

  • @Leslie: I agree; it should be possible to open the Insider PDF in a browser window and read it online rather than be forced to download it. I'm pretty sure it's just a matter of changing the settings for the PDF.

  • Hi Leslie. Hi Derek:

    I don't understand the technology. But I will pass your comments on to others.
