COMMUNICATE

Automatic Emails

Automatic emails help to encourage student progression, and are a useful way to give and receive feedback on their courses. Automated emails can also be set to remind students when they are nearing the end of their support time, or when enrolment fees are due.

Contacting Course Tutor

Students can instantly email their course tutor directly from their dashboard, helping to avoid issues with lost paperwork or computer problems.

Group Mail Sending

If you need to contact groups of students you can use the ‘group mail sending’ facility. This allows you to contact students who are currently studying, have already completed their course, or by other defined user groups.

Feedback

This is where you upload your feedback and comments on the student’s submitted assignment. It is a very simple free-form box, where you can simply type, dictate, or – if you prefer – paste your appraisal and feedback to the student.

Once your students and courses are set up, you can pre-populate the forms with customised templated feedback. You will know that there are certain issues and common themes you address on almost every assignment; complete one such feedback and save it as a template. You can create multiple templates so that students on the same course don’t receive identical feedback.

For ease of use, the appropriate template is presented to you when you select a student for feedback. All you need to do is adapt it and personalise it as appropriate, which takes just a few minutes. 
The really clever bit, which saves you a huge amount of time and mental effort is . . .

Canned Responses

Underneath the feedback, you can create a list of common comments that, again, you use regularly. The list has a tick box next to each response which you simply click to include, and it is instantly appended to the feedback.
