NEW BLACKBOARD BUILDING BLOCK for students at risk

ARE YOUR STUDENTS HEADING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION?

Blackboard makes this easier to check through its 2013 tool, Retention Centre Building Block. This tool supersedes its Early Warning System by automatically issuing instructors (who upgrade to it) with a list of students at risk of failing or not engaging with the course.

Through Retention Centre Building Block you can easily discover which of your students have:

  • missed deadlines
  • received low grades
  • never or only minimally accessed information through Blackboard

If you would like more information please see the Blackboard Help site
