A Few Moodle Matters - please note

Dear All,

A few slightly random issues around using Moodle.

1) Tutors are now putting links to the Common Awards site within Modules.  Please make sure that you have entered the Common Awards Hub before clicking on the link.  If you do not do this you will get a request to sign in - and we do not have user name and passwords for you.  You may need to either search for the article or copy the link into your browser.

2) As many of you have pointed out, the e-books on the Common Awards hub do not have page numbers.  Durham have just published a new set of referencing guidelines which takes this into account.  The good news is that they are not new to us - Durham's advice matches ours exactly.  However, if you would like a full set of Durham's latest referencing guidelines please see:  https://www.dur.ac.uk/resources/common.awards/AcademicConventionsfortheCommonAwardsJuly2018.pdf

3) If you are new or are still struggling to access the tutor's comments on your assignments, we now have a video available on YouTube to demonstrate how to do this.  It is a little rough (my first attempt) but I hope it should be helpful.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SpUqLNehfY&feature=youtu.be

Best wishes

Judith
