  4. Let the students know via a subject Announcement that the module is now available and there is also quiz associated with the module for them to complete.

You can edit the content of the module to tailor it to your subject needs.

Students will also be encouraged via various exams communication campaigns to complete the academic integrity module (AIM) in the LMS academic integrity community. This community contains information about academic integrity in digital exams and is also available to students at the academic integrity website. The content in the AIM is very similar to this LMS Commons module mentioned above.

Satisfactory completion of the quiz in either of these academic integrity modules is sufficient for students to acquire skills in this area, however, students may be more motivated to engage with the module if it is located in your subject, and with your encouragement as their subject coordinator.
