Learner Engagement - Insights Portal

The Engagement Dashboard contains visualizations that provide insight into how students are engaging with their courses. The goal of this dashboard is to help instructors to identify at-risk students so that they can intervene and get them back on track. The information provided in the dashboard allows for individualized improvement suggestions by providing context and a holistic view of the student. By filtering out irrelevant data and combining metrics by filtering on cards, faculty can focus on their own definition of an at-risk student.
