Learning Dashboard Overview and Setup
The Learning Dashboard is a collection of inquiry-based cards that presents data about a specific aspect of learning or engagement in an easily accessible way. The dashboard cards provide real-time, actionable insights into student learning and progress within the course.
Access the Learning Dashboard through the link in the Profile Menu.
Learning Dashboard Basics
- The top of the dashboard displays the Engagement Measure – a snapshot of how your class is performing at any given time.
- To the left the dashboard is sectioned into “learning” cards and “activity” cards – and each card answer one or more questions on real-time learning and participation data for students.
To access the full set of data for a particular inquiry, click one of the following inquiry cards from the side navigation panel
- How well are my students learning?
- Which objectives are my students having difficulty with?
- Which students are having difficulties?
- Which activities are my students having difficulty with?
- How often are students visiting the course?

After creating a new card or making modifications, be sure to click the blue Save Changes button in the bottom-right corner of the card. Doing so will ensure that custom cards always appear in the Learning Dashboard.
