The iLearn Drop-in Clinic is a service offered at the start of every session to provide staff with customised help with iLearn, iTeach, Echo360, Turnitin and Feedback Studio and get questions answered about all other MQ learning technologies.

Thanks to the expertise and support of Learning Designers from across all Faculties, the Session 1 iLearn Drop in Clinic was another great success. Over the 3 weeks we helped 173 people, delivering this service via Zoom.

Here’s the answers to the top 5 most commonly asked questions this session:

1. Can you check if my Gradebook is set up correctly?

We have comprehensive guides on how to check if your Gradebook is set up correctly. The first thing to determine is if all of the assessments have been created (e.g. Turnitin Assignments, Quizzes, Forums). These online activities will automatically create a column in the Gradebook for you. Once that is complete, it will be much easier to manipulate the categories and grade items in the Gradebook.

Since there are variations on how to manage the weightings, we have comprehensive guides on how to set up this up with our Gradebook quick guides.

2. Can you help me with the Turnitin settings and creating a rubric?

When you clone your unit over to a new session, the Turnitin assignments do not clone over with it, so these will have to be created manually again. This is a great chance to check if all the settings are correct (e.g. Originality report visibility, allowing re-submissions and due/post dates).

Rubrics can be created when you select Launch Rubric Manager but its important to remember that it is not attached to the assignment until you select it from dropdown list in the assignment settings.

We have comprehensive guides for Turnitin and Feedback studio for more information.

4. How do I add iLearn Content?

We have comprehensive guides for adding Content for more information.

5. Can you help me setup my unit with the new iLearn Template?
