As previously discussed, there are a series of commitments we have made as a school. The ones that affect colleagues across the all courses both undergraduate and postgraduate are:

Attendance: attendance data must be stored via the PhotoRegister in a timely way (eg the day of the teaching). All staff teaching are committed to doing this is a list of courses BBS 2018 courses

Personal Academic student Tutorials: PATs are expected to use the data with your tutees in the tutorials. These slides show you how to access the dashboard for your students via the PAT Student Lookup.

The school will also need to play our part in the project evaluation and more details will follow on this.

Finally, to confirm launch dates: the emoji ‘How are you doing’ component is scheduled to launch for your students on Monday Oct 1st with the dashboard following on Mon Nov 5th (week 6).

We will distribute a leaflet to the students over the next two weeks.

Programme with links to the content 

Date for your diary

10th September – Module Delivery Day – the aim will be again to collaborate ensuring a consistent approach to implementing changes to modules post CDI.

AACSB: Discussions

Subject groups and professional staff groups will be discussing  the opportunities for staff to contribute and participate with developing and enhancing our mission statement.

Please read the document below as background and guidance,  we are looking to identify distinctive words or phrases that convey our purpose, values, commitments, student outcomes and positioning with regard to business, the professions, and society more broadly around which mission and vision statements might be constructed and add as comments. 

The timeline for this would be the end of June

Mission and Vision review

Reading the critical accounts from the CDI  may also be useful, these are available on the  curriculum design workspace

Please read before attempting to mark Turnitin papers on the iPad

We have been made aware of some synchronisation issues with the Turnitin iPad app, particularly when large numbers of (or very large) student submissions are being handled. We do not recommend using the iPad where there are multiple markers as the nature of offline marking can mean marks are overwritten by another marker, but if you do use the iPad make sure you sync regularly.

tii sync

Sync location

Also note it has been identified that a problem can arise when an iPad ‘sleeps’ during synchronisation – this will prevent the process from completing, resulting in missing papers on your iPad. So, while marking with Turnitin, we recommend:

1. Go to Settings>General

2. Scroll down to Autolock

3. Turn Auto-lock to OFF (your iPad will not now go to sleep unless you press the power button)

4. Plug your iPad in to a charging source (you need to make sure your iPad does not run out of charge)

5. Open Turnitin App

6. Click the  menu menu to see if the sync is in progress

7. This can take time!

8. Do NOT switch to another app, open another app or generally do anything that puts the Turnitin app in to the background, and remember to plug in your device whilst syncing is taking place.

NOTE: Whilst testing this the sync process was very slow for just 1 paper so large numbers of papers could take several hours.

*You will need also enough space on your iPad to ensure that you can complete your downloads. Check ‘Settings’ / ‘General’ / ‘Usage’ to see your available storage. As a general rule of thumb, 1GB+ will probably be fine. You can use ‘Manage Storage’ to identify any apps that are using a lot of space.

Lynda.com (now LinkedIn Learning) at the University of Brighton

Starting to think about resources for next years teaching?

Linkedin Learning is an online library of high quality video training courses covering anything from photography to programming and business skills.

The university’s premium account gives you access to over 150,000 tutorials written by industry experts with more added every week.

Mobile apps allow students and you to learn at any time and any place

Staff Information

Student Information  

Lynda.com service moved to the new LinkedIn Learning platform.

It is possible to share LinkedIn Learning (previously Lynda.com) resources via Readinglists@Brighton

The University’s  access to Lynda.com has been transferred to LinkedIn Learning and all user accounts were copied across. If you previously linked to Lynda.com videos from  email or studentcentral or ReadingLists@Brighton  then these links will continue to work for one year. But if you created and shared playlists, links to these may now be broken – see below

Please note there are some differences to the way we can share resources with students and colleagues:

  • You must be set-up as an administrator in order to share/recommend resources to others
  • LinkedIn Learning allows you to share/ recommend:
    • Individual videos
    • Collections- collection of resources on one topic  (can be personal or shareable)
    • Learning Paths- collection of resources which have to be watched in a particular order
  • Many playlists from Lynda.com have been copied into personal collections on LinkedIn Learning but they can only be seen by their owners – this is why some links to old playlists are broken. These personal collections have to be rebuilt as sharable collections.
  • If you would like to become an administrator in order to be able to share resources, please email ISWORKSHOPS  or complete this request form.

Once you have been given administrator access videos, collections and learning paths from LinkedIn Learning can be shared with your students using ReadingLists@Brighton and instructions and a short video can be found on our ReadingLists@Brighton support pages.

Top tips:

  • Create a separate section within your reading list for these resources
  • Ask library staff how to embed sections of the reading list within Study Materials folders so students have seamless access to all the text and audio-visual resources for that particular theme/week.
  • better searching,
  • ‘collections’ which are like playlists but you can add your own additional resources to them, egg PDF files and your own videos.
  • The ability to ‘Like’ videos
