Using Analytics to Support Learners

How do you know when to offer support to your learners? We pick up on behaviors that indicate a learner is “dropping off” in the course. These might include not participating in activities or discussions, not attending class, not turning in assignments, etc. Both Canvas and Kaltura have analytics features that can help you more effectively track learners’ progress and engagement so you can intervene before it’s too late.

Our blog post from June 13 details how to use these tools to check in on your learners’ activity.

ICYMI – Quick Hit – Canvas Rubrics

Last week Axel Ruiz, Learning Technology Specialist, facilitated a Quick Hit session on Canvas rubrics. The recorded workshop provides tips to help you grade faster while also improving feedback for your learners. You will learn how easy it is to create rubrics, how to find and attach a rubric to an assignment, and how to leave quality feedback in a timely manner.
