Date & Time

February 29, 2024, 12:00 pm12:45 pm


The success of students in a Blackboard course is often dependent on their level of engagement and their ability to stay on track with course content and assignments. As an instructor, it's crucial to have the tools and resources to monitor students' progress and ensure they are staying engaged and motivated throughout the course.

Join Instructional Technology in this 45-minute webinar to review the available Blackboard Ultra progress tracking tools that support progress tracking and communication with students.

Session objectives include:

  • Review tools to monitor how much time students are spending in the course
  • Customize alerts for student inactivity and overall grade
  • Identify what course content students are engaging with
  • Evaluate student assessment attempt logs
  • Communicate with students with reminders and personalized messaging

This session will be facilitated by Dr. Susan Biro, Manager, Online Learning, and Josh Abrams, Instructional Design Specialist.
