Coursework subtab

31st March 2015 - the Coursework tab has undergone changes to the way coursework is displayed. The same information is displayed but it has been simplified to help students see key information such as due dates more easily. Students need to click on a particular coursework item to expand the coversheet download or link to Blackboard.

The first time you access the new Coursework tab layout, you will see a pop-up tour of the changes. Please read through to the end to familiarise yourself with the changes.


In the Coursework subtab, you will see a list of your Coursework items.

Click to expand a submission item and it will show the details such as deadline; status and a link to either ‘Go to Blackboard’ if submission is to be made online in Blackboard, or ‘Download Coversheet’ if submission is by manual hand-in.

Use the ‘Expand All / Collapse All’ buttons to show or hide the detail for all current or previous submissions.
