Cranfield Defence and Security is one of four schools at Cranfield University. Based at the UK Defence Academy, our
students are all mature learners studying post-graduate qualifications in engineering, science, acquisition, management or leadership.
All students submit all coursework to Turnitin during their studies. They undertake a face-to-face Turnitin induction in an
IT lab at the start of their studies. This allows them to get an overview
of the tool and to see how the useful features such as the filters, similarity
matches and feedback options work, as well as going through the process of
submitting a document.
In our presentation, we will show you how we used a Moodle course with activities to guide the students through their induction. Upon completion of these activities, the students are rewarded with an Open Badge. This badge has been
shown to be a great motivator for them to complete the training. All those
who fail to obtain the badge are reported to their Course Director and
may be prevented from submitting further coursework.
We will also share how we refined our training during the academic year after evaluating the initial launch in
September 2015 and the reaction from our staff and students to Open Badges. We will demonstrate how we set up the Moodle course for the automation to work.
