The Activity List let’s you see what your students are up to in real time. Here you can see which students are online, their statuses (working, need help, or done), the website they’re currently looking at, the website they’ve viewed most frequently, and the number of websites they’ve looked at recently.
You can also view the Activity list a couple of different ways: List View gives you a table of student information and Card View gives you a graphical view that also allows you to see your students’ screens.
In this lesson, we’ll look at:
- Switching Views
- List View
- Card View
- Filtering the Activity List
- Pinned List
Student Activity can be viewed two different ways: List View or Card View. Toggle between views by clicking the view icon at the top of the activity list.
The List View displays each student’s status, name, currently browsing, most viewed, and the number of recent sites visited in the last 5 minutes. Click on any column name to sort the list in ascending or descending order (by the column’s value).
The Heat Map provides a color-coded view of user activity by recent websites (few to many). This map also indicates when a user(s) has Insight.
When the Card View is enabled, hover over any student’s initials and click on the screen icon to change the initials to an active thumbnail view of that student’s current screen.
Or, click Show All Screens to change all active students’ initials to screen thumbnails. Click Hide All Screens to revert back to the color-coded initial icons.
When you click on a student’s initials or screen preview, the Student Information window opens to the Open Tabs list.
The Activity List can be filtered to view Everyone, Status, or Currently Browsing.
Select Everyone to see all students who are logged in on a computer during your class.
Click any one of the three statuses (Working, Need Help, or Done) to filter the Activity List by status.
Click on any URL in the Currently Browsing list to filter the Activity List by the site being viewed. The number to the right of the site name indicates how many students are currently browsing the site.
Students who need to be closely monitored can be added to the Pinned list. This Pinned list displays above the Activity list and does not change when a filter (status or currently browsing) is applied to the active list.
To add a student to the Pinned list, hover over the student’s name in the Activity list and click the pin icon (to the right of the list).
To remove the student from the Pinned list, hover over their name (on the Pinned list) and click on the pin icon.
