This document outlines the uses of the course dashboard page in Blackboard Learn course sites and the way that faculty and students can access activated course dashboard pages.
The course dashboard is a page that collects useful information about upcoming and already completed assignments and other course information for the instructor and students. NOTE: Not all instructors activate the dashboard page for their course. If the dashboard page has not been activated by the instructor, the students cannot see the dashboard page.
Dashboard for Instructors
By checking the dashboard on a regular basis instructors can easily keep track of which students are keeping up with the pace of the course.
Dashboard for Students
When Students check the dashboard page regularly they can see what activities, tests, and/or discussions are coming due, which should help them keep up with the pace of the course.
