Accounting Technician magazine/website

Hi all,

I am the Editorial Manager at the AAT and would be interested to hear your feedback on the new magazine and online presence.

In July this year we moved the magazine's frequency to every other month. To supplement the lack of a magazine every other month we built a new section of the AAT website which we populate with news, articles and polls - both in the month's the magazine is produced and, more importantly, those when it is not.

If you haven't seen it, the new magazine section is online at www.aat.org.uk/at.

We use reader feedback to shape our communications, so please use this thread as a forum to let us know what you think. What do you like/find useful? What don't you like?

It would be great to receive your feedback.

Many thanks,

Steven Perryman.

    Hi Steve
    Yes, I have used the new site too and find it really useful. Bi monthly is ok with me and the layout is easy to follow.
    I know a couple of people I have spoken to have said that is aimed too much at the student members now but I am not no sure - different peoples perspective I suppose. Personally I think there is a good balance.
    Thank you for your good work on this ...

    Aye its all good.

    Are you responsible for the forum smilies?

    Also it would be good to appoint some forum users as moderators, as most of us are on here more than the current moderators.

    Hello,

    On the old version of Accounting Technician Online you could search for archived articles by unit number. I can't find this option on the new version. Is it still there? And will we be able to access the archive from the old version too? I find these articles useful for studying whilst at work if i've forgotten my books.

    Hello Steven, thanks for asking our opinion. The only problem I have with the new site is the lack of E-learning material available. Would it be too difficult to put the stuff back on from the previous site? I know many of us found the interactive lessons & stuff invaluable.....PRETTY PLEEEEASE!!!!

    Thanks for your comments.

    Jo - it's interesting that you mention being able to search by unit as we are currently developing this feature for the AT Studyzone area of the AT site. This should be live by the end of next week so look out for it!

    Andypandy - there is still a lot of e-learning material available online in the new studyzone behind your MyAAT login. We have also recently launched Student Interactive which posts podcasts and blogs on units and this is constantly updated on a rolling basis. You can access it at http://www.aat-interactive.org.uk/student

    Also, don't forget to look out for your StudentPlus newsletter each month which highlights some of the services I have mentioned above.

    Steve.

    Thank you Steve, I will keep an eye out for the new search facility.

    Also the Student Interactive looks good, any chance of getting something for Unit 33 on there???
