v10 D2L Sneak Peek: Welcome to Class Progress

Once we upgrade OU D2L to v10 on May 25th, instructors will have access to a great new graphical view of each course’s class progress, in addition to an overhauled individual user progress. We won’t take a look at the individual progress in this post, but students will be able to easily view their individual progress too!

The Class Progress tool provides you with a page to easily view students’ progress or activity for a variety of different indicators. For example, in the course below we are viewing Content, Objectives, Logins, and Grades. We can quickly see that OU Test Student (very bottom) is not participating in the course and appears to be at risk. With no logins and no content visits – it sends an immediate red flag! The great part is that you can customize this page at anytime to match the tools you utilize in your course, just simply click the settings link and replace the indicators as needed.

Class Progress
Instructors will access the new class progress via the Edit Course link in the navbar in the Learner Management section (quick tip: Edit Course will now contain one-click access to all of your available tools). You can select four default indicators of the nine available, which include:

  • Checklist Completion
  • Content Completion
  • Discussions Participation
  • Dropbox Performance
  • Grades Performance
  • Login History
  • Objectives Completion
  • Quiz Performance
  • Survey Completion

We urge you to check out the new Class Progress after the upgrade. It allows us all to be more proactive in at-risk student situations. To find out more about the upgrade on May 25th, please visit the upgrade page!
