If you encounter new or puzzling issues with University of Waikato eLearning software, please check this page.

Here, we will address frequently asked questions to the e-Tuts and CeTTL, questions that have several potential answers, as well as known gremlins/oddities/bugs in Moodle, Mahara, Panopto, Turnitin, and other eLearning technologies. Please contact the e-Tuts if you would like help with any of these, or encounter issues that you think should be listed here.

Why can't my students see their grades?
  • Check if paper or assessment item/s are hidden to students. See these pages for more assistance:
Why can't I see my students/ paper participants?
  • Reset table preferences. Known bug, to be fixed by Moodle in a future upgrade. Brings across filters from previous searches, in other papers, and hides participants. Only occurs if in Assessment>Grading summary>View all submissions, at the bottom of the page under OptionsAssignments per page drop-down is set to 100.


AND you have previously searched for a participant using the First name and Last name filters, AND that combination of initials doesn't occur in this paper.

FIX: Go to Your Assessment>View all Submissions, you should see on the top right Reset table preferences. Select this and all your students should reappear.

Moodle and Panopto are unavailable every Thursday 7:00 am – 7:30 am.
