    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paperpeer-review


    At times students can struggle making the transition from secondary school to university. Often the lack of structure is something they grapple with along with assignment expectations. To assist students a Knowledge Making Blackboard website was created for first year students at a large Australian University. One of the main parts of this Blackboard site was the placement of annotated assignment exemplars for first year students to access so that they have a model assignment with annotations as well as a marking rubric so they can see the standard required and what is expect. This study investigated students’ experiences pertaining to the Knowledge Making Blackboard site for two first year education courses that pre-service teachers undertake in semester 1 of each year.
