In MMCC2090 students are required to post to the OU Blog once each week, responding to a set activity on that week’s topic. They are also required to comment on two other students’ responses. This activity constitutes an assessment (Active iLearn Engagement). I have used the OU Blog participation report to find out which students are falling behind with this assessment, and send targeted e-mails reminding them that they need to post every week. It has been a really helpful way to quickly identify students at risk of failing this assessment.
