Blocks: Engagement analytics
Moodle Engagement Analytics for Moodle 2
* IMPORTANT *
This plugin is useless on its own, you should also get the mod and report plugins that are part of the set.
* ABOUT *
The Engagement Analytics block provides information about student progress against a range of indicators. As the name suggests the block provides feedback on the level of "engagement" of a student, in this plugin "engagement" refers to activities which have been identified by current research to have an impact on student success in an online course. The plugin was developed as part of a NetSpot Innovation Fund project by Monash University (Project manager: Dr Phillip Dawson), with code by NetSpot developers (Ashley Holman and Adam Olley).
From the project plan: "We intend to implement a block that teachers can add to their Moodle course that will provide them with a quick graphical snapshot of which students are at risk." (Dr Phillip Dawson)
It is important to note that the purpose of the plugin is to provide teaching with information only, it does not automatically take any action based on the indicators eg NO email or notification is sent to students automatically. If desired the teacher would follow up on the information themselves, based on what they know about the student and their other communications.
