iLearn automatically collects two types of information to assist teachers in developing online units that meet the needs of students:
- Server usage information
The server logs have information on who accesses the site, the location from which the site is accessed, the time and duration of access, and what material is accessed. This information on individuals is available only to LTC specified staff, Deans and Heads of Department, and is used for identifying reported access difficulties, improving server performance and tracing any breaches of security. The LTC also uses the information for statistical analysis of access times and locations, and for analysis of other patterns of use. In addition, some summarised information may be available to your convenor, but only after the examination period. In all cases confidentiality is maintained and no information about individuals is released. Deans and Heads of Department are responsible for aspects of security relating to IT within their area of responsibility.
- General unit management information
iLearn is able to track information about how you use the teaching material in your online unit. This information is available to your convenor and includes your first and last log in, how much of the course material you have looked at, how many discussion messages you have posted and read, and whether you have read your dialogue messages. If you have concerns about confidentiality, contact your convenor.
