Whenever a student enters your course or clicks on a link within your course, a log entry is created. So you can find out which students accessed which activities at what times.

Viewing the access logs

  1. From your main course page, click or hover your mouse over Course Management.
  2. In the menu that appears to the right of your cursor, click Reports.

    Course management menu with Reports option selected

  3. Select the desired group, participant, date, and/or activity to focus on using the dropdown menus. Leave the actions as All actions because the other choices don’t necessarily apply to every type of activity. If you want to download rather than display the results, change Display on page to Download in your desired file format.

    Example menu selections: All participants, All days, Homework 8, All actions, Display on page

  4. Click Get these logs.
