Dorina Tila showed the group the various ways data can be gathered about students using Blackboard analytics. We reviewed:
Course reports: one option is user activity. A report can be generated for each student that shows the number of times that have looked at different areas on the course’s BB site
Course Activity Overview: provides a summary of overall Blackboard activity for all students.
Retention Center: Retention reports are another useful feature. You can create settings so that at-risk students can be notified of their course progress.
More detailed information about the steps to generate these reports can be found at:
Our next meeting will be on November 7th at 12:40 in M391. John Acosta will show us how to run SCORM reports.
