Moodle: How to give Peer Feedback (Online Learners)


Peer Feedback applies only to EYE Distance (Online) Learners.

You must give peer feedback before you can submit your assignment. Please follow the submission windows on Moodle because without completing this requirement first, you will miss the window for submitting your work.

If for some reason you do miss your window, contact your Group Tutor immediately.

The short video below will give you a walkthrough on how to give peer feedback:

FAQ: How do I change the email subscription to the forum posts?

Once you have posted to the student chat forum or the academic forum on moodle, you will receive one email per new forum post anyone makes in this forum.

However, you may want to change your subscription mode, only subscribe to certain forums or track the forums without receiving emails.

Please note that you cannot un-subscribe from the news forum.

FAQ: What do I need to share with my course tutor in my Pathbrite account?

Your Pathbrite profile includes your e-Portfolio that you will be keeping during you MCI course. Because your e-Portfolio is set up to private, it will only be visible to your Course tutor if you share: you profile and your e-Portfolio.

Once you have done this, your tutor will be able to access every document you upload to this portfolio, so there is no need to share individual documents with your tutor!

FAQ: Why am I having trouble watching videos and animotos?

There might be a few reasons why you’re having trouble viewing your video, so here’s a handy list of things to check:

  1. Clear your browser’s cache and cookies
  2. Make sure you have a high-speed connection. Closing windows or tabs with loading or streaming content can help, too.
  3. Make sure your Flash is up to date. Regardless of your browser, you must have cookies and JavaScript enabled, and have Adobe Flash Player (version 10 or greater) installed. To check your version of Flash, head over to Adobe.(If you’ve already installed Flash and are still having trouble, try uninstalling and reinstalling it. You can also see our guide to uninstalling Flash.)
  4. Try a different internet browser. Remember Google Chrome, firefox and Apple safari are the recommended ones. For instance, if you’re using Internet Explorer, try using Firefox or Chrome instead.
  5. Check your firewall or anti-virus program. If you’re using an anti-virus program or you’re behind a firewall, you may need to adjust some settings. You will have to do that or consult your provider – the MCI support team will not be able to deal with that.
  6. Finally, if your video is simply starting and stopping frequently (called “buffering”), try pausing the video until it’s fully loaded.

FAQ: How to clear my browser’s cache?

Your internet browser’s cache stores certain information (snapshots) of webpages you visit on your computer or mobile device so that they’ll upload quicker. Occasionally, however your cache can prevent you from seeing updated content, or cause functional problems when stored content conflicts with live content. You can fix many browser problems simply by clearing your cache.
