The TEL team have been working to prepare resources and training for the rollout of e-submission, feedback and grading. The programme administrators in the Support Centres have already attended staff development sessions over the summer. These covered the processes involved in setting up and managing both Blackboard and Turnitin assignments. This training is continuing throughout the academic year for new staff joining the Support Centres.

Two new TEL online tutorials will be released shortly in Blackboard to cover:

  1. ‘Setting up assignments’
  2. ‘Marking assignments’.

[UPDATE 25/10/18: These tutorials are now live]

These tutorials have been designed for remote, self-paced and just-in-time learning, to increase the flexibility and accessibility of our training, especially for part-time and sessional staff.

For academics, dedicated School-based training is being arranged in discussion with the SDTLs and a series of general workshops are available to book on ESS. You can also request a 1-to-1 consultation to discuss specific topics or requirements. To see a full list of TEL staff development or book a consultation, log-in to Blackboard and click the ‘Blackboard Help (Staff)’ tab.

The Blackboard Help tabs for both students and staff have undergone a redesign. You can now search for support articles using a keyword or browse by category.

If you need help or support with any aspects of e-assessment, please contact the TEL team via the IT HelpDesk email .
