Access topic participation

The Topic Participation report is useful to identify which students have accessed a particular resource or activity. For forums, glossaries and databases where studies can post, you are able to identify how many posts each student has made. 

A useful feature of the topic participation report is the option to send a message to all students who have not completed a certain task or accessed a resource.

  • Before using this feature, you must have set up the resource or activity you wish to collect information on. Naming the resource/activity clearly is important for easily finding the relevant 'activity module'.
