The existing Turnitin report will change soon for instructors and students.

This affects all Turnitin users in NUS, including those using Turnitin via IVLE.

The new report layout, Turnitin Feedback Studio, offers the existing functionalities of Turnitin, but in a simplified, more intuitive interface.

Feedback Studio will be introduced in two phases:

  1. Recess Week AY16/17 Sem 2:
    Feedback Studio will be enabled. You will be able to toggle between Feedback Studio and Classic view.
  2. Friday 21 July 2017
    Feedback Studio will be mandatory for all users. Classic view will be removed. If you were on Classic view, you will be switched to Feedback Studio.

A video walkthrough, a demo and more information are available.

CIT will be participating in ECAR’s 2017 Student Technology Preference Survey. The survey will give an indication of NUS student’s orientation towards technology, the number and type of devices they own and the extent they use these devices in their academic work. It will also give an indication of students experiences of NUS wireless network and learning environment.

The survey is scheduled to run from 1st February 2017 to 15th April 2017.

As NUS moved its staff and students onto Office 365 in 2016, CIT and Computer Centre are organizing a Microsoft Office 365 seminar for Teaching and Learning on 23rd February 2017.

This seminar will give an overview to staff on the Office 365 tools that they can use to get organized, collaborate and engage with their students and fellow educators. This Microsoft Office 365 seminar for Teaching and Learning is planned to run on a regular basis.

CIT and Computer Centre are co-hosting the APRU Education and Research Technology (ERT) Forum 2016 on 17 and 18 November. This forum will focus on Sustainable Technology and Learning Across Institutional Collaborations. A diverse group of educators and learning technologists will come together to share their perspectives on active learning strategies, student-centric analytics, challenges in conducting online assessments, pedagogy and curriculum and moving towards lifelong skills upgrading. The event will be held at UTown in NUS.

The Centre for Instructional Technology (CIT) has launched a social messaging service called TeamUp.

TeamUp chat - share screenshots and files

TeamUp allows you to create teams with whom you can chat, exchange links and files. This can be done via web, mobile or desktop apps.

Unlike other chat apps, you need not share your phone number to use it. Also, replies to messages can be threaded so that communication is kept in context.

In TeamUp, you can group chat with everyone in a team. For large teams, you can set up smaller, private groups. Like most messaging services, you can also direct message other members in your team.

TeamUp - private groups and direct messages

 

The service is open to staff and students. TeamUp can be used for modules, projects or any other situation where group communication is needed.

A guide to TeamUp is at https://wiki.nus.edu.sg/display/cit/TeamUp.

NUS students who would like to use for projects and other communication among themselves please use https://teamupstu.nus.edu.sg.
