If the My Sites widget does not include all the units it should, please contact the Unit Chair or your Faculty CloudDeakin Support team to gain access to the unit.

Go to How to navigate your unit in CloudDeakin for information on accessing the CloudDeakin homepage, and navigating components and tools that may be found in your unit.

It is not recommended that you use the desktop view on your mobile device as not all functionality works on mobile devices. The following mobile apps are free and can help staff access, view resources and grade assignments in CloudDeakin.
