Students are using an Infinite Campus Student Portal to report online harassment and bullying.
The portal was launched on the university’s campus in the West Coast capital, Melbourne, last week.
The website allows users to anonymously report problems with a particular student, with the option to share the report directly with the victim.
The site has since been used by more than 6,000 students.
Student groups and students have complained that the report system is not designed to help them deal with issues of online harassment.
The students are also concerned that the portal’s privacy settings are insufficient.
The administrators of the Infinite Campus portal told TechRadars that the new system was designed to make the report process more efficient.
“The Infinite Campus is designed to support students with issues, and we want to make it easier for them to do that,” the university said.
“It’s a great way for them (students) to get in touch with us.”
In the report field, the administrators of Infinite Campus said students would be able to share their experiences with harassment, bullying and harassment on the site.
They also confirmed that a number of people had reported problems with the report site.
“We are actively working to improve the reporting system and to improve its quality so that it is as accessible as possible to all students,” the administrators said.
A spokesperson for the University of Melbourne confirmed that Infinite Campus was in fact being used to support the report systems efforts.
“We use a number to identify problems,” the spokesperson said.
“Students can also report issues on the report page, which allows students to send directly to the university or the university to resolve the issue.”
