Ed Discussion to facilitate a sense of belonging

Ed Discussion can be used in courses to increase a sense of belonging for students. Interactions amongst staff and students can be enhanced through questions and answers, sharing documents, annotatable images, video and even math equations. Ed can also be used for social posts including memes, gifs and emojis, facilitating an engaging online learning environment.

Register for Ed Discussion workshops >>

Turnitin GradeScope now available

GradeScope facilitates the marking of handwritten assessments such as math, chemistry and physics, but can also be used for marking computer software. GradeScope allows the grouping of similar student responses together for simultaneous marking and feedback, greatly improving the efficiency of the marking process in large courses.

Coordinators can set up GradeScope for either student submission of scanned documents or staff submission. GradeScope is now available for all courses. View the guides or attend a workshop to find out more.
