CEE TEL Design Participation & Engagement

Participation & Engagement

Examples - Records of attendance, class lists, conditional availability rules, progress tracking, reporting time on task, tracking access to materials, and correlating student activity with performance on tests.

Designing with participation and engagement tools

It is important to monitor how students are engaging with the subject materials and participating in face-to-face and online elements.

Learning analytics enables educators to track student activity and provide feedback to support learning. The data can also be used to reflect upon improvements to the student experience, curriculum, and subject design.

Data types

  • Subject Reports provides a graphical summary of site usage and activity for all or selected students between nominated dates.
    Subject Reports

  • Question analysis provides statistics on overall performance, assessment quality, and individual questions. This data helps you recognise questions that might be poor discriminators of student performance.

  • Discussion analytics provide you with insights into forum participants and activity. This information can help you identify students who are participating or may need help and encouragement.
    Student Discussion Activity (BB Help)

  • In the Subject Activity Report, you can view how active your students are in your course materials. This activity has been shown to correlate strongly with course outcomes. Students who are active in online subjects are more likely to get high grades.

  • Students can visually identify what tasks they have started, completed, or haven't interacted with. Educators can see these reports to find out about student engagement within the subject site.
    Progress Tracking

  • The Session Attendance Report provides an overview of when attendees joined and left sessions. It also gives you an idea of how long attendees were present in the session on average.
    Collaborate Reports (BB Help)

  • The Session Engagement Insights Panel is a tool companion for moderators in Collaborate that shows with data how the audience is engaging while the session is occurring; opening the space to think about actions that may help keep or improve the energy of a session.
