Workshop description:

In this workshop we will focus on 2 main areas on our LMS Blackboard: Online Assignments and the Plagiarism prevention tool, Safe Assign.

We will first look at the creation and submission of online assignments, as well as how you as the lecturer will do the marking of the assignments online, by making use of Blackboard’s inline marking tools (commenting tools) and the interactive rubric (grading form).

Secondly we will be focusing on the SafeAssign tool which is built into the Online Assignment Tool. SafeAssign is a plagiarism prevention service that allows you to protect the originality of work and ensure a fair playing ground for all of your students. SafeAssign prevents plagiarism by detecting unoriginal content in student papers within your existing teaching and learning environment. SafeAssign can also further deter plagiarism by creating opportunities to educate students on proper attribution and citations while properly leveraging the wealth of information at their disposal.

Please book your space using our online booking system.
