Overview

You can enrol teaching staff, administration staff and guest lecturers into your Learn.UQ course. Depending on the role they are assigned, users then have the ability to add content, add assessment tasks, mark student work, enter and edit marks in the Grade Centre (refer to Roles in Blackboard guide). Students are enrolled automatically into your Blackboard course based on enrolments from SI-NET.

Warning: Current students who are teaching/tutoring in your course must be enrolled using their staff username. Students enrolled in your course with staff level access will receive three warning emails (after 1 hour, 7 days and at 14 days) regarding the issue and after 14 days their access to the course will be disabled. The warning emails are sent to both the student and the course coordinator.

Tip: Contact your local Human Resources Consultant to organise a staff account for students who are teaching/tutoring in your course.
