Training classes are available on the following topics:

DISCOVERY: Turnitin & Grademark

The Turnitin Assignment type has many great features; however, more steps are required to set up the assignment.  During this session, you will add a “FAKE” student to one of your courses, create a Turnitin assignment, and then log in as the “FAKE” student to submit a paper to Turnitin.  After a quick overview of GradeMark, including the new voice comment and the rubric options, you will use GradeMark to view the assignment, add comments, and submit the grade to the Discovery Gradebook.

Files, photos, and videos saved to DropBox can be accessed from any computer, smartphone or online, and folders can be shared with others.  This session will cover the basics of using DropBox.


Attend an Open Lab if you need to add/update the content on your faculty or department website on Eagle.  We will share how to use Dropbox to store the files you want to link to, as well as talk about the new Plugins that are available.
