5 November
4:00-4:45 PM
Speakers:  TBC

As students click on UMMoodle to get files and read announcements, trace data, is being generated. Instructors can make use of this trace data in ways to support learners, improve quiz questions, and see which online activities are used more or less. It is also important to let students make use of this information. However, generating more useful data may require setting up a course site differently. In this session, find out how to use activity completion and other tools in Moodle to enhance a course or use trace data to inform or enhance one’s course design.
