The Digital Learning team has created an adaptive short course of videos to support students using Journal. Relevant videos will be included by default on a 'Using this Site' page on most Journals. This guide acts as a signpost towards the entire suite of these videos and some more advanced guidance for users with a special interest.

Short Course

These videos form a 15 minute short course teaching you the basic skills you’ll need to use Journal. We recommend watching them all through once at the beginning of your module/course, and then referring back to them when you want to complete specific tasks.

The videos are hosted on Microsoft Stream so you may be prompted to log in to view them.

If you’ve got any questions about how you should be using your Journal, the academic staff on your module will be able to guide you. If you have any technical issues that your academics are unable to answer, please email dlsupport@falmouth.ac.uk
