LEO Guides for staff – What’s new?

Published: Monday 7th November 2016

The NEW LEO (Learning Environment Online) guides for staff includes a range of support resources from the new user to the experienced user.

What’s new this week?

Working with groups and groupings

The Groups and Grouping functionality is useful if you want to make particular resources or activities available to different cohorts of students

Using Groups and Grouping means you can create a single instance of an activity and allow students to interact with it within their separate groups, as opposed to creating a new activity for each Group such as a forum.

To find out more about using Groups and Groupings, visit the following support guides.

LEO assignments

The LEO Assignment activity allows students to upload their assignments in a digital format. It accepts many different file formats, including Word documents, spreadsheets, PDF, images and online audio recording.

Some of the things to consider are when providing online marking and feedback are:

  • Do you want to review submissions online or offline?
  • Do you want to download each submission individually or all in one go?
  • Do you want to upload student submissions that include your feedback?
  • Do you want to record all the grades offline in a spreadsheet and then upload the grades in one go?
  • Do you want to use Gradebook to add quick grades and comments?

To find out more about LEO assignments go to:

Turnitin GradeMark offers a suite of assessment tools used by markers to provide feedback such as comments Creating and attaching a Turnitin rubric to an assignment also allows markers to provide further feedback to the student and even associate comments to rubric criteria.
