Dear NUS Students,

Student Technology Survey 2017

The Centre for Instructional Technology (CIT) at the National University of Singapore seeks your support to participate in an international survey that explores the technology ownership, usage patterns and student expectations as they relate to the students' experience in the use of technology to support teaching and learning.

Your participation will allow NUS to pro-actively plan and meet students' expectations in the use of IT for teaching and learning. Your responses will be anonymous and completely confidential. This survey will take about 30 minutes to complete.

CIT thanks you in advance for your time in taking this survey.

If you need further information or require clarification about this survey, please email ECAR Survey2017 at ecarsurvey2017@nus.edu.sg.

For an independent opinion regarding the research and the rights of the research participants, you may contact a staff member of the National University of Singapore Institutional Review Board (Attn: Dr. Chan Tuck Wai, at telephone 6516 1234 or email at ird@nus.edu.sg).

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.
