Mark Homework in the Virtual Room


It is easy and convenient to mark homework that your students have submitted in the virtual room! You no longer need to bring piles of paper and spare pens - instead, mark assignments on both your computer and mobile devices. This allows you to use your mobile devices' touchscreens for ease of marking. 

Best of all, there is unlimited storage space in the virtual room, and entering Work on My Own mode to simply edit documents is free

With the desk system, you do not need to worry about the security and privacy of your students' homework as homework submitted or uploaded onto the student's desk can only be accessed by that student and you, the teacher.

You also do not need to wait to return the assignments to your students as they can access the virtual room at any time to check their marked homework and do corrections, even if you are not in the room. Simply drop them a message after marking their homework!

Marking on Computer

Enter the virtual room under  Work on My Own mode.

Click the Desk icon at the top right corner.

Select the desk of the student whose homework you wish to mark. 

Click the '+' icon to open a new tab.

Click the homework document you wish to mark. This will open it in the virtual room deskspace under a new tab. 

By default, the six most recently modified files will be shown. Click View All to load more files into view if necessary. 

If your students submit hard copy homework via the Submit Homework feature, their homework fileswill be auto-named in this format "Assignment DD/MM/YY <username>" to make it easy to find them in the content library. If your students submit soft copy work such as PDF via the normal uploading method, encourage them to name their files appropriately after uploading to help you identify them more easily.

If there are a lot of files in the student's desk library, you may choose to key in the name of the file you are looking for in the searchbar. You can also search for specific types of files by tapping the  filter icon and selecting the type of file you are looking for. You can then find the file in the filtered list.

You can then annotate and edit on the document to mark it. 

If you have completed marking the homework and want to move on to marking another student's homework, click the Desk icon again.

Select the desk of the next student whose homework you want to mark.

If you no longer need to use the file, you can return the file to the Library by clicking the  X icon on the tab to close the tab. This will return the file to the Library. This is so that your student's deskspace does not become too cluttered with too many open tabs!
