I really should make an apology to David Raines, Creator of the Portal, for a previous post I wrote. He found my post and I don’t think he was too happy! So to prove that the Portal isn’t as useless as people may think, he helped me find useful documents =) And I have to say, they are a big help! I specifically wanted documents on the University Regulations with regard to Assignments etc and information on Plagiarism, and Dave found them for me.
(Please note, it was Dave who found them, so I feel there is still a problem with finding things. I find it to be very ‘busy’.)
Also, after looking around Blackboard Dave found some Communities that I could enrol to that give information on Plagiarism and Exam techniques. Absolutely brilliant!
The thing is…I never knew these existed. So for the past 2 years I have been completely oblivious to these guidelines because the academics didn’t tell us about them! Why they wouldn’t tell us about something like this is unbeknown to me.
Better late than never I suppose.
