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 and, in the menu that appears, click Reports.

  1. 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.


  1. Click Get these logs.

Participation report

The participation report tells you which students have viewed a particular activity and allows you to email the students (higher ed only) who have not yet viewed it.
  1. From your main course page, click or hover your mouse over Course Management and, in the menu that appears, click Reports.
  1. Click the Participation report link.

  1. Choose an activity and look-back period, and set Show only to Student. For most activities, you’ll want to set Show actions to View (the Post option only applies to forums and essays).


  1. Click Go.
  1. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Select all ‘no’. It that button doesn't appear, first click Show all x to get all students onto a single page.

 

  1. Choose With selected users > Add/send message.
  1. Type the desired message to the students and then click Preview.

  1. If the preview looks acceptable, click Send message. Otherwise click Update and return to step 8.
