Overview


This guidance gives you an overview of the way that student's are managed on Learning Space, how you can manage groups and test how things look as a student.

How are students assigned to their modules?


Students subscriptions on Learning Space are controlled by their enrolments on the student record system. Once a student is enrolled onto the module on SITs (the student record system), they will be subscribed to that occurrence of that module on Learning Space (more than one occurrence usually shows that there is more than one version of the module running. eg. there is a full time and a part time cohort, or one that runs in study block 2 as well as 1). 


How do I manage groups, and why would I use them?


There are many reasons to use groups within your modules on Learning Space. Many of the activities can be used with groups to facilitate collaborative tasks. Once the groups exist, you can set most activities to use them so that the groups within the module are able to have a closed space to discuss and work on their projects.


For more information on setting up and using groups see the Groups guidance.


How do I view the module as a student?


As a member of staff on a module on Learning Space you have the ability to view the module as a student would see it. You can therefore get a good idea of how the student will navigate, and if they will see the relevant information in a timely and consistent way. To do this:


From any page on Learning Space, you will always see your profile picture in the top right hand corner. To view any page as a student:


Click on your profile picture.



Select 'Switch role to...'



Finally select 'Student'.



You will then see the message 'Currently viewing as the following role: Student' under your name in the middle of the page and you can navigate around Learning Space as a student.


To return to your normal role, click your profile picture again, and select 'Return to my normal role'.


What do I do if one of my students doesn't have access to a module?


As mentioned above student subscriptions to Learning Space modules are controlled by their enrolments on the student record system. So, if a student does not have access to one of their taught modules it means that their enrolment has not completed. Please get in touch with the student records team who will be able to look in to it.
