Coursework

Coursework notifications will display a list of reminders relating to Coursework submissions due in the next week which you have not yet submitted. Please note that Blackboard submissions will display regardless of whether you have submitted and Coursework coversheet submissions will display until either the coursework has been scanned or the due date has passed. A detailed list of your Coursework submissions will still be available via the Coursework tab.

The notifications are colour coded as follows:

  • Red - if the submission is due today
  • Amber - if the submission is due tomorrow
  • Green - if the submission is due within the next 7 days

Please note: The Notifications area will only display Coursework submissions which are shown on your myUWE Coursework tab. There may be other types of coursework submissions which are not listed for example e-Feedback submissions or in class assignments.

UWE E-mail (students only)

If you have important unread messages in your UWE e-mail inbox, you will see a notification telling you that “You have new important e-mail from UWE’. If you have no unread important e-mails from UWE, the notifications area will display a link to your UWE e-mail.

Personal Tutor Meeting Notes

If you have received Meeting Notes from your Personal Tutor which you have not yet approved, you will see a reminder under Notifications. As soon as you have approved an outstanding meeting note, the reminder will be removed. For advice on approving meeting notes, please see our Personal Tutors guidance.
