At present, there is only one way to be notified about new student submissions and it’s not perfect, called Event Monitoring.
Event Monitoring can send you a message when any student submits an assignment to a specified assignment area on any course that you are enrolled to.
To switch on Event Monitoring for an assignment area, go to your profile in the top right of the VLE and click Preferences.
Go to Event Monitoring at the bottom of the page then select the course that has the assignment on it. Now select the assignment that you wish to follow.
You will now receive an email whenever an assignment is submitted on this assignment.
This is however, not perfect at the moment. You will currently receive a notification whenever anyone submits, whether they are in your cohort or not and the system cannot yet tell you the name of the student. We are looking to improve this functionality with later versions of the system
