I was a “Reserve Invigilator” today. This means that you get to sit by the phone in your office waiting to get called in to an exam. Fortunately everybody turned up, and so I was able to get on with some more lovely marking.
My “Revision Tweets” do seem to have had some effect, in that I’m getting answers to some of the questions that seem to have been based on what I said, which is nice. I’ve noticed that students make much less use of things like forums these days, perhaps Twitter is the way to go with this.
