August 2014 - Upgrade Features

New! Analytics Module - Content Tracker
  • In the Reports area in eLab, select the Content Tracker Report and then select the course (section) to view
  • Select all students or an individual student. A list of all selected students will be provided
  • The screen report will show how much of the various resources in the content area have been viewed by the student(s)
  • At the top level, you can see what percentage of the total course resources have been viewed by the student. Then drill into the data for an individual student to see the percentage that was viewed for each unit and each individual lesson. The lesson view can then be expanded to see each individual resource in the lesson and whether the student viewed that resource
  • You will be able to see that at this point, the student has utilized 9.87% of the Lesson 3 resources, with 100% of the Lesson Overview, 5% of the Learning Resources, and 9.55% of the Videos utilized. And with the Videos section expended, you can see what percentage of each video has been viewed so far
