Topic administration - shared topics

This entry relates to topic administration.

A shared topic combines several cohorts (topic availabilities) into the one FLO site.  

A shared topic could be useful if you are teaching a topic in multiple locations or teach multiple topics with the same content for different discipline areas. 

Shared topics can also enable a more social learning experience if they bring together many small groups of students or individuals. 

Shared topics must be created before students have access. Contact your eLearning support team to create a shared topic. 


Guidelines for shared topics 

  • Let your students know they are participating in a shared topic site 
  • Internal and distance – the FLO topic must be designed for online delivery (see the FLO topic baseline guidelines
  • Undergraduate and postgraduate – activities and assessment must be appropriate to the AQF (Australian Qualifications Framework) level of the student enrolment and clearly communicated to students to avoid any confusion 
  • Gradebook – grading can be complex in shared topics due to different SAMs. Please make sure you contact eLearning support for assistance with setting up the Gradebook as early as possible
