Need help with your web projects?

ITServices will be offering its Summer Student Web Resource Program (SSWRP) in 2011 for the third consecutive year. First launched in 2009, it’s designed to assist departments in advancing their web-based projects using ITServices’ supported tools and applications. The program has been particularly popular with departments and faculties wishing to build new or update existing websites using WebPublish, Queen’s web content management system. As well, with WebCT being phased out this year, the program is a great way for instructors to get assistance migrating their course materials to Moodle.

The students were great and easy to work with. We covered a lot of ground and did some wonderful things. I have found in recent years that it is a better use of our funds to invest in building an effective web presence and one that is manageable for all of us. Many of our program websites would not have had the opportunity to upgrade their sites without the help of the SSWRP.

Program Overview

  • ITServices advertises for, interview, hires, and trains the students, as well as providing workspace and equipment for them.
  • ITServices pays the students and bills the client for their time. The 2011 client rate is $20/hour, which covers the cost of the students' hourly wage, vacation pay, statutory holiday pay, training time and supervision, as well as some of the costs associated with project coordination.
  • ITServices will do a consultation with you in the late winter/early spring to ensure we understand your requirements, and then we'll do an estimate of how long we think your project will take and you pay only for that amount of time. Or, you can tell us you want someone for a specified period of time and we'll bill you for that.


Would you like to be a client of SSWRP 2011? If so, please email no later than Friday, February 18th. Please indicate the nature of the work you are seeking help with. You will be contacted by ITServices in late winter to develop a detailed understanding of your business requirements.

If you are a Queen's student and think you might like to work for ITServices this summer, watch the homepage of the ITServices website  for a News story in March to find out how to apply.

I wanted to let you know how much we appreciated the program. The students we had with us were fabulous, they were well-trained, knowledgeable and keen.
