In collaboration with Faculty Learning Designers and The Learning Innovation Hub, we were able to help and assist staff with their iLearn, iTeach or Unit guide woes with the bi-annual Drop-in Clinic. With Session 1 well underway, we go back and take a close look at the most frequently asked questions we received during this session’s iLearn Drop-in Clinic. Hot topics include:


How do I set up weightings in Gradebook?

Gradebook may look daunting at first but is simple to set up by following these steps:

  1. Create your assessment modules on your iLearn unit page, eg: Quizzes, Turnitin, etc.
  2. On the Gradebook setup page, create a new category for each of your assessment tasks and set their weightings eg: Participation, Assessment, Exam, etc.
  3. Move the assessment modules into their respective categories.

A full breakdown of these steps and more can be found through the Gradebook quick guides.


My Turnitin assignments have disappeared when I cloned my unit. What happened?

Turnitin assignments do not get copied over during the unit cloning process. You will need to create a new Turnitin assignment. Rubrics used from previous sessions can be attached to newly created assignments.

What is the difference between the Due Date and Post Date?

The Due Date refers to when the last day assignments are to be submitted. The Post Date refers to the release of assignment marks and feedback to students. The postdate is set generally, 2 weeks after due date.

Have a look through the Turnitin and Feedback Studio quick guides for further information.

Unit Guides

When do you submit unit guides for approval?

As per the Unit Guide Policy, Unit guides need to be created, approved and published;

  • 6 weeks prior to Session for external students
  • 1 week prior to Session for internal students.

How do you create or update unit guides?

If a unit guide needs to be updated, you’ll need create a new draft and submit the unit guide again for approval.

As setting up your Unit guide can be a complex process, easy-to-follow quick guides are available for convenience.
