Nothing to do with TEL except that I think its a lovely use of graphics to represent something that looks dry as just numbers and tables
Voter Migration 2010-2015. This page first posted 30 May 2015. This page gives an updated version of the pre-election esimates of voter migration. The idea is to analyse voters by how each one voted in both 2010 and 2015. Many voters will have continued to support the same party, ...

ABOUT THIS PROGRAMME
Seyi Rhodes investigates how some teachers and pupils are coping with the pressure of examinations by bending the rules and sometimes cheating the system. He interviews whistleblowers from schools across the UK who reveal the tricks of the trade, including lenient marking, altering students' test papers and grades, inflating schools' GCSE pass marks and even removing difficult pupils from the school register. The film also looks at how easy it is to cheat through university, exploring the multimillion-pound industry where students pay someone else to write essays for them.

In an ideal world, the assessment done would involve work where it was impossible to cheat. The older I get, the more I question what value my 'O' levels really had - over my life, the skills I have gained and the work situations I have dealt with have had far more impact on my development - exams were just a hurdle to the next stage.

Blackboard's workaround for now:

After recording the video, click continue, this will save it in youtube.com
Log into youtube.com, click on the video you have just recorded.
Copy the url
Go back to the editor on Bb environment
Click on Insert/Edit Embedded media
Paste the url into the File/URL
Change Type to Embedded Audio
Insert

Just shared this with our Director of L&T - think it has a lot of merit even outside of the world of EMA, really useful checklist.

Anyone else out there using peer review in turnitin? We are in our second year of running it and Id like to have a chin wag with anyone else doing same. Particularly interested in how we deal with students who wont review so we have ended up with at least 1  person who has done what's expected of them but not had their submission reviewed. Also the flexibility of the tool is bit pants...eg you cant extend the period over which the reviews can be completed for any late comers
