How do I send a message to an individual student based on specific course participation criteria in New Analytics?

When comparing the course average to an individual student, you can send a message to the student in the analytics page.

Sent messages can be viewed within the Sent folder in the Conversations Inbox.

Notes:

  • If you cannot view the New Analytics link in Course Navigation, you may have to make the link visible via the Navigation tab in Course Settings. If the New Analytics link is not available in the Navigation tab, your institution has disabled this feature.
  • Data is refreshed in New Analytics every 24 hours. Please confirm the time the data was last updated in the course, as content may be outdated compared to recent course activity and student submissions.
