Learn.UQ (Blackboard) was upgraded late last year to include a range of new and improved tools and features.

New tools include a text editor which comprises of a cleaner and easier to use interface, spell checker, and improved functionality when copying and pasting from word, and a fully functional equation editor calledĀ WIRIS; a retention tool to visualise student engagement and progress; and a social learning tool that allows students and staff to update a profile and connect easily with other students enhancing online collaboration.

But that is not all. The upgrade also included improved features in the discussion board navigation with a new simple layout; the inclusion of inline grading through the assignment tool; and customised settings in the test tool.

Login to your staff Learn.UQ and test out the new features for yourself.

Training is available through UQs Staff Development programsĀ https://staffdevelopment.hr.uq.edu.au/course/ELWNBB. Schools and groups interested in custom training for their staff should contact Ailsa Dickie (contact details).
