Each section in the image above is numbered and explained in the list below:

  1. Click on this item for instructions on how to follow the JCU Subject Template.
  2. Maintain naming conventions and consistency, you will see instructions in the 'Subject Setup Checklist' as noted in the first point. Pre Semester Discovery Reports search for clean terms – do not add _, “, :, ; or numbers to the item titles.
  3. Set up the overall grade - assessments must total 100 percent.
  4. All Collaborate sessions should be clearly names with the subject code.
  5. Publishing Mediasite videos correctly to LearnJCU enables a full data discovery.
  6. Avoid creating redundant folders - activity data is only picked up at level 1 and 2
