Promonitor Reminder

promonitor

I know it’s a busy time but remember to:

  •  Add yourself to your student groups – click the yellow banner at the top of the student group (this makes that group a shortcut from your homepage).
  • Markbook Structure – it’s very important to check the units you teach and feed back any alterations to me asap.
  • Assessment Schedule – you need to input your dates. It’s important to input any changes too when you know about them.
  • Target Setting – the Initial and Aspirational Target Grades go here.
  • Students in the wrong student groups? – Lecturers and ILT can’t change these. Contact Learner Records to make the changes in EBS (this will change in Promonitor the following day).

If you need a reminder on Promonitor or help with anything please drop me a line:

Do you want an easy quiz tool to engage your learners?                                 Kahoot

Kahoot is fun and allows learners to use their own devices in a positive way.

Like the sound of this?  Ask your ILT  contact to run a quiz to show you how it works.

Turnitin

 You can use Turnitin via a link on your Moodle page.                                  Turnitin

Learners can upload their assignments to the link and view originality (plagiarism) reports.

You can:

  • View originality (plagiarism) reports.
  • Use a spell check and grammar tool.

The originality report and grades are viewable on your Moodle page. You and the learner can click on the work to view the marked work in full.
