Wordless Wednesday: My TEAMIE for IPE MBA

Today's Wordless Wednesday is slightly different from the usual. I've received an email from the Olympia College administrator saying that my access to the student portal—through what they called as TEAMIE—is now ready for access. In TEAMIE (pronounced as team-mii), I will be able to access course contents, read notifications and participate in forums.

A snapshot of how my TEAMIE looks like

If you're wondering what I'm up to, I've enrolled into an MBA program with the IPE Management School, Paris. I first wrote about this on 1 November. I attended the induction last week (story here) and will begin my first course, Leading Organisation, next week.

I will be dedicating one year and six (or three!) months to complete the MBA, including the thesis. More sharing about my learning journey with you soon!

Updated on Friday, 14 November 2014: I found a serious breach of privacy in the Olympia College TEAMIE student portal. The issue: Home address is public in the TEAMIE portal. I immediately wrote to Olympia about this and was told they are now looking into the this issue. I do not want the world to have access to my personal information and certainly NOT my home address. I seriously hope this will be resolved immediately by removing it and other personal information from public viewing in the system.

Updated on Wednesday, 26 November 2014: The problem (issue with home address being public in the TEAMIE portal) has been resolved. I’m glad to see that the College views customer feedback as a way in improving their services and handles them efficiently. Kudos to the Penang team and especially to Sri for driving the resolution. We often find or experience that as customers we could lodge our complaints or provide feedback, but our problems might not be entertained. Olympia College in Penang is proving itself to be different, and I mean in a good way. The customer (a student like me) is able to voice her opinions, and the College is serious—through its actions—in providing quality service and customer satisfaction.

Updated on Friday, 16 January 2015: But then there are many other problems. While one or two of its staff members are OK, the contents are not OK and the library is certainly appalling (the problem with IPE MBA at Olympia College).
