Logs

A log of activity in the course may be generated by an Instructor in Administration> Course administration>Reports > Logs.

Course logs allow instructors to see which resources or activities have been accessed and when. You can check to see if an individual student has viewed a specific resource or participated on a particular activity. You can limit your search to a specific day, or get results for a series of days.

To generate a log, select any combination of group, student, date, activity and actions, then click the Get these logs button.

Logs

  • Course filter: The default is the current course.
  • Participant filter: The default is all users (participants). Pull down the list to select a particular participant.
  • Day filter: The default is all days. Pull down the list to select a specific date.
  • Activity filter: The default is all activities. Pull down the list to narrow the filter to one activity.
  • Action filter: The default is all actions. Pull down the list to limit the action to View, Update, Delete or All Changes.
