Important UQ is replacing the Electronic Course Profile System (ECPS) with a new system. From Semester 2, course co-ordinators should confirm their readings using Talis Aspire instead of the ECPS.

We encourage course co-ordinators to start considering learning resources, reading lists and textbooks for Semester 2, 2024 to ensure they are available to your students in week 1.
