esubmission long

In support of the University’s e-submission policy for the academic year 2016-17 the eLearning Unit continue to run e-submission and e-marking workshop days throughout the academic year. The days consist of three sessions described below and you are welcome to attend any or all, in whole or in part. We also run tailored school and departmental workshops and if you are considering training or consultancy from the team for e-submission and marking processes and systems, please do get in touch as soon as possible. You will also find dedicated online support resources from the eLearning Unit in the VITAL module VITAL Baseline and support, on which all staff are enrolled.

To search for and book onto any session please see the CLL booking page here. Scheduled e-marking workshop days (all on Wednesdays) for the rest of 2017 are:

  • January 18th
  • February 22nd
  • March 15th
  • April 26th
  • June 14th

Session 1: An introduction to electronic submission of coursework

(Please note this is not a lab-based session). The University is moving to online submission for coursework assignments (see this blog post for more detail on policy). To help staff get an overview of the available tools, understand associated current issues, and plan your own approach to e-submission the eLearning Unit offer this session comparing and discussing the two tools in VITAL for electronic submission, the Blackboard assignment tool and Turnitin.

In this two hour session we will look at:

  • An overview of e-submission in Higher Education and at Liverpool, including the student view
  • A discussion of attendees’ current practice
  • Analysis and examples of the two available assignment submission tools, Blackboard Assignment and Turnitin Assignments and the linked tools available for each.
  • Institutional guidance and key issues for planning assignment submission ‘workflows’.
  • Follow-up support and guidance.

Session 2: Turnitin Assignment tool for e-submission (part 1) and GradeMark for feedback (part 2)

This practical session runs in two parts. After a quick recap of the key differences between Turnitin and Blackboard we will firstly look at the different ways in which the Turnitin Assignment tool can be set up for online assignment submission (part 1 – 45 minutes approx). Then in the optional second part (45 minutes approx) we will try out the GradeMark feedback facilities available, from Criteria marking sheets to inline comments, both in desktop and mobile versions. If you would like to try out the mobile version of the grading tool please could you bring your device. This is available for iOS devices only at the moment and can be found here: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/turnitin/id657602524?mt=8

Session 3: The Blackboard Assignment tool for e-submission (part 1) and feedback (part 2)

This practical session runs in two parts. After a quick recap of the key differences between Turnitin and Blackboard we will firstly look at the different ways in which the Blackboard Assignment tool can be set up for online assignment submission (part 1 – 45 minutes approx). Then in the optional second part (45 minutes approx) we will try out the grading facilities available, from Criteria marking sheets to inline comments, both in desktop and mobile versions.
