The iLearn Drop-in Clinic has wrapped up for Session 2 2021 and it was another great success delivering one-on-one help to 157 academic staff over the 3 week period.
The clinic operates in the lead up to every session to provide staff with personalised help with any iLearn issue. The service is supported by learning designers from across all faculties as well as the central Learning & Teaching Team. Lately, for obvious reasons, the clinic has been run over Zoom.
This session we collected stats on the type of issues people were seeking help with to identify areas where additional support and resources are required.
Here are the top 5 iLearn issues and where you can find further help:

No. 4 – Groups
How to automatically create tutorial groups?
How to restrict access to activities to a particular group?
TIP: Make sure you enable Class Group Sync in iTeach when you activate your iLearn space (although it can be enabled at any time). Class Group Sync automatically creates groups in iLearn based on student enrolments. These groups are refreshed twice daily, meaning that when students change classes in eStudent, these changes will be reflected in these auto-created iLearn groups. It is also possible to manually create groups and groupings.

No. 5 – Turnitin
How to set up a Turnitin assignment?
How to create a rubric and attach it to an assignment in Turnitin?
TIP: When cloning an iLearn unit from one session to another, Turnitin is the only activity that does not copy over and you need to create new Turnitin assignments.
