Progress Tracking in Desire2Learn 10.3 : The Newer, Better Checklists

Progress Tracking in Desire2Learn 10.3 : The Newer, Better Checklists | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

by Alex Joppie: Progress tracking turns your Content area into a checklist for students. Every item in your Content can be something that students can check off as they complete it, or something that’s automatically checked when the student does something in D2L, like submit to a dropbox folder or complete a quiz attempt. This is what it looks like for a student.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Like Joppie, I've been slow roasted by many D2L upgrade issues For this very reason. I appreciate his upbeat on new Student Progress tracking features in D2L 10.3.


The promise of a non redundant checklist has my attention. If checklists are drawn from the course contents, instructors will be free of the tedious task of creating and updating a separate set of checklists.


Sounds good to me. Let's hope the feature works as promised!

Another year, and online learning, e-learning, learning technologies, educational technologies, digital learning, or whatever you call it or them, will continue to grow, become more prevalent, and more a central part of teaching and learning in higher education – but exactly how and in what ways?


The general trends are not going to change much from 2011 (which I identified as course redesign, mobile learning, more multimedia, learning analytics,and shared services), but some of the specifics are becoming clearer. Below I’ve ranked my predictions in order of significance for higher education, and also given a probability rating of the prediction actually happening.

Learning to create hyperlinks within discussion posts helps create added value to discussions.  D2L can  be tricky.  It's nice to have a blog based searchable reference.  Tip of the hat to the UW-Milwaukee Learning Technology Center (LTC)
