A learner can have a coach allocated to them so they can provide support and feedback throughout a course. Coaches can review and mark the learners' assessments and provide feedback on activities. A coach also has access to the course content. They will receive notifications when learners they are allocated to submit assessments or respond to activities.
In addition they can review and provide feedback and/or a mark on peer evaluations.
To add a coach, use the same process as you would for adding learners or facilitators. Simply click on the Coach tab and enter the name and email address of the person you wish to add. Once added you can then assign learners to them.
Once your coach has been added, learners need to be assigned to the coach. To do this click the plus icon on the right hand side.
In the Edit mark relationships area you can select the learners that you want to assign to the selected Coach.
Once you have clicked done, this will update and return you to the access tab. Where the plus symbol was previously should now be updated to reflect the number of learners that are assigned to that particular Coach.
If you're adding a coach to a tasks course you don't need to do anything else. The coach will be notified that they've been added to the course and will automatically have access to all tasks for the learner(s) they've been assigned to.
If you're adding a coach to a legacy course you now need to choose which assessments the Coach should have access to. This can be done under the assessment tab. Once you save/update the offering the coach will be notified that they've been added to the course and will automatically have access to the learner(s) and assessments they've been assigned to.
Coaches will be notified whenever a learner they’ve had assigned to them submits an assessment or responses to an activity. They can then login and view/download assessments and provide feedback.
