Staff Information

This new service was developed by ISS in response to a number of engagements with students carried out during the previous academic year 2015/16. Students voted overwhelmingly in favour of this new service above many other choices. You can help us to ensure that this new service is a big success by following these three simple steps:

  1. Configure all your assignments in Loop. We advise that you set up your assignments and due dates in Loop so it appears on students’ calendars, even if you do not use Loop for assignment submissions.
  2. Please ensure the assignment due date in Loop is set correctly initially so that the correct dates are reflected in students’ calendars.
  3. If an assignment due date is changed or extended then the due date in Loop should be updated to reflect this.
