Exam security update - Blackboard Tests

To improve exam security, access to Blackboard Tests has been updated so Tests is only editable by Instructors. Staff with the Teaching Assistant role are still able to mark tests. If required, refer to the Change a user's role in a course guide.

Renew your lecture content for Semester 2

In response to student feedback, the University is keen to provide up-to-date learning content wherever possible or have old recordings tidied up. For information on pre-recorded video options, refer to the Desktop recording options comparison guide. If you need a personal tutorial on desktop recording, book an appointment with an eLearning Adviser.

The ITaLI Educational Media Production team can help you produce online lectures and other teaching resources using desktop recording. Priority will be given to staff having difficulties due to poor home internet connections. The team also provides advice on filming and editing practicals using smartphones.
