Q. I’m an External Moderator. What do I need to do?


Your first step is to obtain a NILE account and ensure you have been added to the relevant NILE sites - this will be requested by the module leader from the Quality Team within the University.  

Once you have an account you will be provided with access to the modules you are moderating within our VLE NILE. This is based on the platform Blackboard Learn.

From within here, you will be able to view the selected modules and access each Grade Centre.

The module tutor may choose to make a selection of assignments and grade details available to you within a folder on the left menu titled 'External Examiners'.

When you are accessing modules some areas may be set to only be available to 'Instructors' please check your edit mode is enabled (see image below).


For more information please refer to this Guide for External Moderators (PDF)
