How engaged are your students?

Course Insights is UQ's own course-level learning analytics dashboard available to all Course Coordinators via Learn.UQ. The Engagement section provides staff with information about student engagement in Learn.UQ and edX (Edge). The tool identifies disengaged students to contact prior to census date.

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 TurnitinBlackboard assignments and Tests you need to carefully set both the individual tool settings and the Grade Centre column settings (Hide from Students on/off).

Turnitin comment banks

Turnitin QuickMarks are comment banks that can be created, saved and re-used on any assignment. QuickMarks can reduce the time required to provide feedback on common mistakes and can also be shared with tutors to improve the marking consistency.
