Blackboard now have some tools to help you gauge student participation in a Collaborate session.
The Insights panel will appear at the bottom of the Collaborate screen during a session.
The Session Engagement Insights statistics include how many occasions where students have raised their hands and participated in the chat. See the Blackboard Help pages on how to interpret the data.
Along the bottom of the panel the tips will appear to prompt further interaction with the participants.
Closing Insights Panel
To close the Insights panel click on the large X in the bottom left-hand corner of the panel. Once closed the panel will appear as a small icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.
Learn more about Blackboard Collaborate Insights from the Blackboard help pages.
Insights for Recordings
In the Collaborate Ultra Recordings page there is a new tab named Recording Usage. This tab shows data on how many views or downloads a recording has received.
Insights for Students
Students can now see where they are in the queue of raised hands. A small number will appear next to the Hand Raised icon.
