Screen Equipment (DSE)

In order to help with electronic marking, all academic staff can request a 22" widescreen monitor. To request a larger monitor please email itservicedesk@derby.ac.uk

If you have a disability or an illness which means that you cannot mark using a screen, discuss this with your line manager first. It may be more appropriate to use the Print to Mark function but please do remember that we expect the student to receive electronic feedback when using this option.

Here are some practical tips when marking online:

Getting comfortable

Using a keyboard

Using a mouse

Reading the screen

Posture and breaks
