Uploading recordings

When recordings are made in class, you can often deligate this task.
For this you have to assign the role “student with upload rights” to the student by editing the student.

The student then has another menu item “Upload”. There he can add files to individual appointments and also remove his files again. The files uploaded by the administrator cannot be edited by the student.

The maximum file size limit is 100mb.

Can a student have multiple tutors?

Yes, it is possible for a student to have multiple tutors. Students will always have a main-tutor, but it is possible to transfer (override) this. The transfer must be made for each class. To do this, go to the “Course” menu at the top of the page. Then you need to choose which course you want to work with. Near the bottom is an “Assign a Tutor” button. By clicking this button you can change the assigned tutor. 

In the “Student” column you can set the tutoring parameters. You can assign a tutor for an individual homework assignment or for a category of assignments.

Clicking the “Filter” button allows you to choose which assignments, categories, or meetings should be assigned to a specific tutor.

In the last column you can assign a Tutor to the selected assignment, category, or appointments.

Is it possible to restore a deleted course?

No. When a course is deleted, then so are all of the homework assignments, appointments, and attendance records in that course. In the case that a course is deleted on accident, you should contact us as soon as possible to discuss options for moving forward.

Can a user be in two courses?

Under certain circumstances. A tutor or administrator can have multiple courses when he/she is a tutor in those courses. However, t is not possible for a user to be an active student in one course and at the same time be an active tutor in another course. In this case, one of the courses would have to be set to “inactive.”

How can I reopen closed assignments?

A closed assignment can only be reopened by an administrator.

Is it possible for a student to take Bible Survey Online as an individual?

In most cases it is not possible. You can contact us at support@bibelkunde.online and we will consider which possibilities would be open to you.

Questions from Tutors

Are there answer keys for the book summaries?

The EBTC does not provide a “master answer key” for the book summaries because there really is no one way to summarize a book. What we do provide is a template with the themes and information that a student must identify in his/her summary, regardless of how the student writes it up. Tutors can then use these templates as an aid in correcting student summaries.

How can I change a grade I have entered?

A tutor can always regrade an assignment he/she has already graded, though we recommend that this only happens as an exception. The student will receive notification when the homework assignment is corrected.

Questions from Students

Why is my assignment not being completely saved?

That can happen when you do not have a good connection to the internet or in the case that you have forgotten to click “save.”

A way to retrieve lost text is to click on the “TODO” icon to the top right. All changes will be saved here from which previous versions can be restored.

How can I download my assignments?

Every student can download his/her assignments and grades.

Go to the “Assignments” menu and click on “Download Assignments.”

You will then be able to choose in which format you would like to download your assignments. PDF files are usually the best for printing.

Payment Questions

Will my expenses be refunded upon cancellation?

Yes, proportionately. Per processed Bible book, we will refund the costs accordingly. However, after 50% of edited books on the Bible, no costs will be reimbursed.

Will each student receive an invoice/bill for the course?

No, invoices will be issued on a school or class basis.
