Resources to Monitor Student Online Course Engagement

As UMBC continues an emphasis on online classes during COVID-19/Coronavirus, we have a variety of reports and resources to ensure that students are engaged with the courses. The reports below will assist you in determining whether and how recently students are using Blackboard to access their courses.

These reports take instructors directly to information about the courses they teach this term. The course roster shows the number of days it has been since a student has logged into Blackboard and summary information about how students are using Blackboard in an individual class.
