Getting ready for Session 2

Now that Session 2units are available in iTeach, this means that Department Managers can now assign unit convenors to their Session 2 iLearn units.

If you’re a Unit Convenor, you’ll be notified once you’ve been assigned to your unit code/s.

After this, you can:

Create your Unit Guides:  Log into iTeach and begin working on your Unit Guide for submission, approval and publishing on Macquarie’s Unit Guide website.  

  1. Once published, you’ll need to add the URL for your Unit Guide to your iLearn unit.

    Note: As of Session 2 2018, Unit Guides should be available to students 2 weeks prior to the start of session, i.e. Monday 16th July.
  2. Activate and manage your iLearn unit:   Create your iLearn unit through iTeach and add teaching staff, unit start and end dates, student cohorts, and turn on group auto sync. Once the unit has been created, you can add and update iLearn content – such as recreating Turnitin assignments, setting up Gradebook, changing due dates, etc.
