Does anyone have any suggestions for solutions to support conducting online feedback forums? The idea being that we ask alumni to review a video to prompt discussion points and feedback can be left which may prompt/encourage others to leave feedback (anonymity function would be useful). The video needs to be hosted somewhere that is accessible to our Chinese alumni so the usual suspects are out of the question.
Anyone else out there using turnitin grade anything (with images as the submission but it could be anything) , on the iPad app and using Siri for completing the general comments ?? Just wondering if Ive bitten off too much here
I am increasingly getting reports of issues with Turnitin. Obviously it's been down a few times recently which we have no control over but I've had a few students report that they could not access it at all to upload their assignment. It turns out that Internet Explorer seems to be the main culprit for that. Having tried a different browser they were able to upload successfully .
I've also had increasing reports of students being unable to access their feedback in Turnitin via the 'My Grades' link and getting an "Error 124" message. There doesn't seem to be no rhyme or reason as to when or why this happens. I usually resolve this by just making the Turnitin link available again. However, I came across this advice from Aston University which seems very useful.
Great! Thanks James, that's reassuring to know. At first it was just one or two and now it seems to be most of the assignments. I'm spending a lot of time responding to students and fixing these issues. It would be nice to be made aware of these issues.
Starting at 5pm on Saturday 19th December, we will be upgrading MOLE to a newer version of the system to introduce a number of system improvements and bug fixes. This will mean it will be unavailable for a period of time so this work can be carried out. MOLE will be available again for use by 9am Monday 21st December.
Just a quick update. With the help of +Daniel Villalba Algas setting up a VPP apple account I'm now able to distribute paid for apps to our suite of iPads without the users having to own their own apple login. Ill update at one of the furture TEL events or at the next WRLT group.
just to add. Following a successful explain everything session yesterday with Daniel I've used Meraki to take back 2 of the licences we pushed out to our loan iPads and it has successfully removed the App. Its working just as I hoped
Ideas for delivering audio feedback longer than the 3 minutes allowed via turnitin? Note the assessment has already been submitted via turnitin but the module convenor now wants to do audio. Attach audio file to the assessment in the gradecentre? download assessment as pdf and use audio comments then email it? Any other ideas, but note the feedback all has to go out simultaneously and we are trying to streamline it and make less work so no selective release audio files!
Dear all, does anyone know a way of automating permissions for google folders? For project weeks, I want each group to have their own folder (students get edit permissions to only their groups folder) and then six groups to be gathered so there is an umbrella hub level that the facilitators/staff member can edit plus a folder that all students can edit. Simpelse (I hope)? Is there an app that can help? Thanks, Trish
What solutions are colleagues using for module evaluation?
We've been asked to look at a paper scanning solution to capture scalar ratings and free form comments(!) whilst also minimising work-load for support staff. Not sure a paper system is required at all. But in peoples experience what is the hit on engagement like if we move to an entirely electronic solution?
Electronic evaluation seems to have a poor reputation for engagement within our faculty. Do we need to offer bribes? What incentives / threats have worked for you?
Be really interested to hear what people are using out there and perhaps pay you a visit?
