In our latest release on May 1st , we activated new functionality for instructors. Instructors are now able to see their students progress through the course’s timeline.  From the Course Dashboard, there is a section called “Student Activity Snapshot”

When you load Student Activity Snapshot (you need to click the link to referesh the data), useful information will show:

The first column shows the student’s name.  In the overview, you can see the  Last Activity a student performed along with the time it occured.  The last column shows the progress of a student through the Timeline Sessions.

You can also easily email any (or selected) students if you wish by clicking the envelope icon or checking multiple students and clicking a button that will appear below the student list.

How is the Timeline progress calculated?


Let’s say that in your timeline sessoins there are 20 items in total:

  • 12 Materials
  • 1 Exam
  • 3 Assignments
  • 4 Forums

Maximum progress is 100% so each item is valued 5%.

Examples of how the calculation works for different types of items …
