Control the release of results

During marking or moderation you may not be ready for students to see their results. To control the release of results from Turnitin, Blackboard Assignments and Tests you need to carefully set both the individual tool settings and the Grade Centre column settings (Hide from Students-on/off). Refer to the Turnitin, Blackboard assignments and Tests guides for step-by-step instructions.

Teaching and Learning Week

Teaching and Learning Week is an opportunity for the UQ community to celebrate and share innovative and excellent teaching and learning practices that engage and inspire students. For further information refer to the Teaching and Learning Week webpage.

Would you like assistance processing student grades?

If you would like a personal tutorial on transferring marks to SI-net, uploading MCQ spreadsheets to Grade Centre or any other Learn.UQ grade processing activities then email with "ELSS - Nomination" in the subject line. For further information visit the eLearning Solutions Service webpage.

Get organised early

To help you get your Learn.UQ course organised before you go on holiday, there are a range of eLearning workshops available in November and December. Alternatively if you would like one to one support from an eLearning Advisor then contact our eLearning Solutions Service.
For further information visit the eLearning Solutions Service webpage.

Known Issue: Students accessing Turnitin Feedback

Students accessing Turnitin Feedback Studio for the first time may experience difficulties accessing assignment feedback from the My Grades link. The current solution is for the student to access the Turnitin Submission link (View/Complete), then click on the View button. Once completed, feedback will be accessible via My Grades normally.

ITaLI TeachAssist

TeachAssist is provided by ITaLI for the UQ community to offer support for their teaching and learning. If you are considering changing your curriculum, its delivery or assessment, evaluating your teaching or perhaps even educational research then get in contact through the ITaLI TeachAssist website. Assistance is available on a range of pedagogical, teaching professional development, evaluations, learning analytics and online learning development activities.

Proposed Learn.UQ upgrade date 2017

Teaching and Learning Support is seeking feedback on 2017 Learn.UQ (Blackboard) upgrade date options. Preliminary research indicates that the week starting Monday 10 July would have the lowest impact on teaching activity. This is a university vacation week - the week before semester 2 orientation begins. The upgrade requires a 48 hour outage.
Feedback is sought from the UQ community regarding the impact of Monday 10 July and Tuesday 11 July.
Please contact Elizabeth Wardrop by emailing
