Workshop: Using Turnitin on Blackboard to deter plagiarism

Wednesday 15th October, 2:00 to 4:00 pm

Turnitin’s Originality Check helps instructors check students’ work for improper citation or potential plagiarism by comparing it against the world’s most accurate text comparison database. Turnitin has been fully integrated into Blackboard to make it easier for staff and students to use. A Turnitin Assignment can be created so that students can each submit their own work for automatic scanning. Any instructor on the course can then view the results and check the reports for signs of plagiarism.

This workshop is offered at the intermediate level. Participants should be comfortable with the basic functionality of Blackboard.

 

Workshop: Getting Started with MCQs

Thursday 16th October, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm

MCQs (Multiple Choice Questions) can be used for self testing or for continuous assessment as part of an overall assessment and feedback strategy. This hands-on workshop will give you the chance to create and deploy an MCQ test in your Blackboard course, also covering recommended test settings.

This workshop is offered at the intermediate level. Participants should be comfortable with the basic functionality of Blackboard.

 

Workshop: Using Blackboard for Assessment and Feedback

Wednesday 22nd October, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm

Blackboard at NUI Galway provides a range of options to support student assessment, including: online submission of student work; support for marking and the return of feedback; interactive tools to support reflection and collaboration; originality checking; video assignments; multiple choice quizzes; and more.

This workshop will give you an opportunity to experience some of the tools available and direct you to resources where you can find out more. It will also demonstrate how the various assessment tools link to the Blackboard Grade Centre, and how marks and feedback are available to students there.

This workshop is offered at the intermediate level. Participants should be comfortable with the basic functionality of Blackboard.
