Features

A progress bar for a student
  • The Progress Bar is a time-management tool for students.
  • It visually shows what activities/resources a student is supposed to interact with in a course.
  • It is colour coded so students can quickly see what they have and have not completed/viewed.
  • The teacher selects which pre-existing activities/resources are to be included in the Progress Bar and when they should be completed/viewed.
  • Ordering can be done by times/deadlines or by the ordering of activities in the course.
The overview page
  • There is an overview page allowing teachers to see the progress of all students in a class, which is helpful for finding students at risk.
  • Adding the Progress Bar block to the My home page shows users a combined view of their progress on all courses (where the block is set up).

Installation

The Progress Bar block is added like other blocks (How to install a block).

Setting up a Progress Bar

Once the progress bar is installed, you can use it in a course as follows.

  1. Turn editing on
  2. Create your activities/resources as normal
  3. Add the Progress Bar block to your page (How to add a block)
  4. Move your Progress Bar block into a prominent position (click and drag the block title)
  5. Choose to:
    • Monitor all activities (pre-fills configuration page)
    • Select which activities to monitor (start from scratch)
  6. Set the activities/resources you want shown in the block to "Yes" and those you don't to "No".
  7. Set the date and time when the activity/resource is expected to be completed/viewed by (some activities have deadlines set, if so, that deadline can be used or another can be set in the Progress Bar block configuration).
  8. Save changes.

Hidden items will not appear in the Progress Bar until they are unhidden. This is useful for a scheduled release of activities.
