Dear Teachers,

We are pleased to let you know that we have produced a series of short video tutorials on GradeMark of Turnitin. Turnitin is an online anti-plagiarism tool. GradeMark is a new feature of Turnitin that enables teachers to give feedback, leave comments and grade the assignments of students online. It also keeps submitted assignments, papers, comments and grades in one neatly organized place. You can watch the videos here.

Besides, the following hands-on training courses on Panopto and Moodle are now open for registration. You are welcome to attend. Please register the courses by clicking the “Register” hyperlinks below.

(2) If you have taken a Moodle hands-on course offered by the ITS, we recommend you follow up with an e-learning Pedagogical Support Unit (EPSU) workshop and/or a Faculty of Education/ Centre for Information Technology in Education (CITE) seminar.

The EPSU of the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) offers pedagogically focused e-learning workshops, which leverage the central Moodle platform to enable good teaching practices. These workshops focus on teaching approaches and good teaching practices, complement the Moodle courses offered by the ITS and the Moodle seminars offered by the Faculty of Education/CITE, which tend to focus on innovative teaching practice using the new features available in Moodle.
