Sway is an online platform where you and your supporters, together with staff from your School, can view uploaded congratulatory videos and pictures to mark the end of your studies and all your hard work over the past few years.
We will be creating a Sway page for each School, which will be able to be accessed via the Graduation Essentials webpages, using a code that will be emailed to you once the virtual celebrations open in July.
We will be asking you to upload your celebratory messages via a Microsoft Form unique for each School. Details of how and when to do this will be shared in the next couple of weeks. A similar call out for videos will also be sent to your lecturers and tutors asking them to share their own messages of congratulations to you.
Your School’s Sway page will be open for you to post to from Monday 12th July 2021 for a period of 2 weeks, until Friday 23rd July. After this 2-week period, all Sway pages and their content will be deleted to comply with UK privacy laws.
Other supporters (such as family and/or friends) will also be able to submit their own videos to appear on your School’s Sway page - they will need to email their videos to firstname.lastname@example.org from Monday 12th July.
Please note that all videos will be moderated by a member of staff before being published. Once approved your video will be able to be seen by others who have access to your School’s Sway page including School staff, other students and their supporters.
Please do pass this message on to your supporters so that they can celebrate with you. Please be aware that anyone under the age of 13 who wishes to post a video must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
We wish you all the best for your future and look forward to when we can come together again in person for your graduation ceremonies.
