Blackboard upgrade – Retention centre for monitoring course activity and participation

As part of this summer’s upgrade, Blackboard will have a new feature called the “Retention Centre”. This allows Instructors to monitor activity and participation in courses, including marks, missed deadlines, course access, and other criteria which staff can set themselves.  It can be accessed within each course Control Panel and also from the new “Global Navigation Menu“.

4  minute video tutorial on the Retention Centre is available.
