During corona time, exams are executed in MyCourses, with quiz or assignment (or Turnitin) activity. The exam can be executed in course workspace or, if there is no course workspace, in separate exam workspace, with self enrolment key (or the teacher adds students manually).
Log in to your workspace in good time, at least 10-15 minutes before the exam starts. Avoid logging to Dashboard but use the workspace link. When the exam starts, refresh your browser to make sure you see all activities in course space.
During the exam week, MyCourses session time is extended to 4 hours. If user doesn´t perform any activity in MyCourses in 4 hours, the session expires and user is logged out.
Note! If your exam is part of a course you have not participated, make sure you have access as a student to the exam workspace! Guest users don´t have access to exam activites. Contact your teacher if any problems.
