  • Find out which students have completed the Safer Communities course
  • Add the iLearn Insights Block to your unit for quick access to the most popular iLearn Insights reports
  • Macquarie Business School (MQBS) faculty staff now have an additional nine different email templates for sending personalised bulk emails
  • Easily provide direct links to key student services in your targeted emails using a range of new iLearn Insights email variables that have been added
  • Activate cached data in your iLearn Insights settings to speed up the time it takes for pages to load – especially helpful if you have a large unit

Coming up….

There will be a separate presentation on recording and reporting student participations using iLearn gradebook on Thursday 15th February 12:00PM to 1:00PM. This will provide targeted information for academic staff who would like to record student participation and send personalised emails based on their participation.
