Hi, I can't see the term 4 columns in the markbook to enter in my attendance, do I add this in myself?

Thanks for asking the question in the forum Andrea.  Allows everyone to see the answer which is good practice when it comes to online learning.  This has been another common question over the last couple of weeks so it allows me to set the record straight.

At the risk of seeming to change the rules, you can add columns if you want to continue using the markbook, but the key info for me was gained from term one to three.  At this late stage there is not a lot I can do if students aren't turning up to VC so I am happy enough if you just keep your own record for term four.  Everyone should still be emailing eDeans when you get unexplained absences.

I think the Virtual Markbook was a really good idea, so thanks for getting that set up this year.
