How can I see who is falling behind, not performing well or not engaging in the course -- and notify them?
The Bb Retention Center:
Watch this video tutorial for an overview of the Retention Center
The Retention Center lets you glance at a visual list of students at risk, specific items and students you are monitoring and your course activity. The alters feature graphs and visual indicators to alert you to students who fall into the following categories of "risk"
1. Missed Deadlines
3. Course Activity Alert
4.Course Access Alerts
You can use the Retention Center lists to notify students who fall into the categories above, or for any "rule" you create within the four categories.
I'd like to offer Extra Credit - How do I add that to the Bb Grade Center?
You can add a column to the Bb Full Grade Center to reflect extra credit points for students. It's a matter of adding a new column, and setting the points possible to 0. Bb will add any points you enter to the total column, without penalizing students who do not earn extra credit.
