Here it is – your Session 2 essentials checklist. Don’t forget to put the drop in clinic information in your calendar now!


Department Administrators can allocate staff to Session 2 units and notify Unit Convenors accordingly. See Assigning Staff.

Unit Convenors can then activate (create) S2 units via iTeach – see Activating An iLearn Space.


Once Unit Convenors are assigned and notified, they can prepare Unit Guides and submit them for approval and publication at Macquarie’s Unit Guide website – see Create and Update Unit Guides.



Once assigned to their unit/s, Unit Convenors can begin to prepare and update their iLearn unit. This includes recreating all Turnitin assignments, which needs to be done every session.


  • Contact Faculty Learning Designers at the start of session to set up your Gradebook so it’s ready to go before your first assessment task is due.
  • Search iLearn Staff Quickguides for information on setting up and using a wide range of iLearn tools.
  • You may also like to include a link to the iLearn Student Guides to help students use relevant tools and access grades/feedback.
