We’re getting excited about an upgraded Turnitin in iLearn from Thursday 26 May, 2016. Look forward to a smoother setup and some great new features that we have been asking for!
Term or phrase: Digital literacy
Almost 500 students filled in the latest survey to tell us how satisfied they are with using iLearn, Macquarie’s learning technologies platform, and how they think their experience could be improved. Here are some of the most common themes.
Have you ever wanted to just check a paper for matching text in Turnitin, without having it permanently stored in the Turnitin database?
Did you know you can use the ‘No repository’ option when setting up a Turnitin assignment in iLearn?
I’m asked this question regularly and I often overhear worried students discussing it on the bus. The simple answer is no set number exists. If only life were that simple!
Are you using rubrics to grade your students’ assessments? Did you know that you can create and mark with your rubrics online using GradeMark?
Like all technology, iLearn can sometimes seem to experience a technical hiccup, become slow or even go offline. But any number of things could actually be the cause of this – such as your broadband connection, or the wireless network on campus, or maybe Cookie Monster decided to break the internet. Here are a few simple steps to work out what’s causing the problem.
We are pleased to advise that Turnitin have released the update to fix the issue with their app.
The Learning Systems Team have also completed testing of the updated app before announcing the release. Testing has shown that the issue is indeed fixed.
What to do now? You will need to download the update the app on your iPad. Go to the app store here. Sorry to Andriod users, Turnitin only developed an app for iPad.
