Creating a tracking module or component
I would like to create a tracking or module or component where when each student completes X number of activities which equates to fulfilling completion of the course, they can track/monitor their progress, but also download their progress to use as proof they completed the tasks. For example 1) students must complete each module, 2) students much complete Activity A (assignments) Activity B (obtain 22 items related to assignment B, and 3) students much complete the final exam.
So, I know that for items 1 and 3 I can do the checklist with no problem. Would I include 22 checklist items for item 2) to track that those items were completed by each student? Do I need to set the 22 items up as a module itself? For 22 items in activity B, students also need to write information about what they did (e.g., completed complementary session with AK on 9/1/2018 at 7 pm.) That would be item 1. There will be 22 such items like that.
I want to make sure I make this easy enough and trackable. Please advise.
Thank you so much.

Hi Dr Reid!
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by item, but OL platform tracks everything the students do in the course. Usually, courses consist of several modules (=units) with several pages in each one. Each individual page can consist several elements (items?) such as some text to read, a video to watch, a quiz, a task where students need to submit something they've written. Each of these can be tracked.
Student track record could look something like this:
(see image below)
"Not started" means that the student hasn't done anything on this page.
5/6 means that they have completed 5 out 6 elements on the page.
None of these are limited in number.
Would this work for you?
May I ask if you've seen or taken a course on OpenLearning's platform?
The best place to start will be with our Rethink Learning and Teaching series.
It is a series of a few free courses (and more upcoming) based on on our pedagogy and best practices.
I'd recommend enrolling for the courses and seeing the possibilities of the platform along with our flexible, student-centric teaching practices.
