Getting started

Welcome to your first week at CoCA. Here are some tips to help you make a good start.

Your Massey password

In the email that confirmed your offer of place you will find your student ID number. Go online to MyMassey, and follow the instructions to set up your password, or re-set this if needed. If you have any trouble please pop into Student Central and they will help you.

 

Stream & your timetable

Stream is Massey’s online teaching and learning environment.

What’s on Stream

Each course has its own Stream site. Your lecturers will post the assessment brief, weekly study plans, links to helpful resources, and important notices about the course there. These sites help you get the most out of your learning.

Important information that applies to you in all courses is hosted on the following sites:
• First Year BDes, BFA
• Creative Media Production Forum
• Commercial Music Forum

These sites tell you about our systems and processes, such as how the timetable works and what to do if you are sick.

 

How to get on to Stream

Login at: stream.massey.ac.nz using your student ID and password. The system will prompt you to set up a password that you will then use whenever you visit Stream. Set this up now; many of your Stream sites are already open and you’ll find new information going up steadily.

 

Your Timetable

Unlike school, you have a lot of free time at uni; you organise your own time. If you are a full-time student, we expect you to do about 40 hours per week of study, including classes.

All CoCA students find their timetable information on Stream. Please do not use the information on the MyMassey timetable. The Stream sites are:

 

First Year BDes, BFA:
Design and Fine Arts students find which classes you have been assigned for your core courses. Once you have seen this you can sign up for a time for your elective.

 

Creative Media Production Forum:
CMP students find your School’s timetable. Your courses typically have a fixed lecture slot, and alternate workshop times that you will have to sign up for.

 

Commercial Music Forum: Commercial Music students find your School’s timetable. Your courses typically have a fixed lecture slot, and alternate workshop times that you will have to sign up for.

 

If you cannot access the Stream site, go to Student Central. If you want a hand with your timetable, come to one of our workshops at Orientation:
See: www.massey.ac.nz/orientation for details
