5. Keeping learning on track
Student progress: See how far students are progressing through the course by going to Administer Students > Students
Announcements: Creating announcements will send an email and a notification to all students in the cohort. This is great for staying in touch with students on a regular basis, reminding them of approaching deadlines as well as sharing upcoming topics in the course.
Analytics: Find more detailed information on student engagement in your course under Administer Students > 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, Students or Comments.
Moderating students’ posts: If necessary, you can also report inappropriate comments and flag spoilers. Flagging comments as spoilers hides the comment and gives students 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.
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 students throughout the course.
