The course dashboard makes it possible for instructors to add and edit useful data visualisations. The dashboard can be accessed by going to your course ➜ Summary ➜ Dashboard.
Adding visualisations to the dashboard
The course dashboard shows two visualisations by default — activity completion and active learners in course. If you want to add other visualisations, click the + Add visualisation button in the left side of the toolbar. You will now see a page with visualisations that can be added to the dashboard.
We currently offer 3 different visualisations that can be added to the dashboard, but are constantly working on adding new options. Each visualisation is described in detail below.
The activity completion visualisation shows the completion rate of activities in your course. The visualisation can filtered based on tags, and customise to only show certain flows or activities in your course. The filter will be persisted for all instructors in the course.
Active learners in course
The active learners in course visualisation shows the number of active learners across a 30 days time period. This chart has the same filter options as the activity completion chart.
Rubric question insights
The rubric question insights visualisation shows an a bar chart for scale and yes/no rubric questions. Once the chart is added to the dashboard, you can select a review activity and scale and yes/no rubric questions to get a distribution of answers.
Reorder & resize visualisations
In order to reorder and resize your visualisations, either click the Reorder & resize button in the top left toolbar or open the context menu for a visualisation and click Reorder & resize.
Once you've clicked the button, it will be possible to drag n' drop visualisations and drag visualisations from the bottom right corner in order to resize it.
Visualisations can be renamed by clicking the context menu in the top right corner and clicking Rename. Edit the title of the visualisation and click the blue checkmark button.
Visualisations can be removed by clicking the context menu in the top right corner and clicking Delete. Confirm your action and the visualisation will be removed from your dashboard. You can always it back again.
