Learner progress: See how far learners are progressing through the course by going to Administer Learners > Learners

 

Announcements: Creating announcements will send an email and a notification to all learners in the cohort. This is great for staying in touch with learners on a regular basis, reminding them of approaching deadlines as well as sharing upcoming topics in the course.

 

Analytics: Find more detailed information on learner's engagement in your course under Administer Learners > Analytics, such as, how many comments have been made on each page, which page has the most activity or average time spent on each page. You can also filter the data to Pages, Learners or Comments.

 

Moderating learners’ posts: If necessary, you can also report inappropriate comments and flag spoilers. Flagging comments as spoilers hides the comment and gives learners the option to reveal it manually while reporting comments as inappropriate or disliking comments will hide the comment from the community. You can find these options under the drop down menu located in the top right-hand corner of any comment.

 


Letting the community take off

As the community becomes more active, self-sufficient and self-regulating, you can now enjoy seeing them take learning into their own hands. You can still be on hand to provide support when necessary or even when you’d like to, to maintain the rapport and the connections you’ve made with learners throughout the course.
