Early Warning System in Blackboard

All faculty should have received an email from the Registrar’s Office this week with a reminder about the Withdrawal deadline for students.  Has this left any of you wondering how to monitor student performance in Blackboard?

Good news!  We’d like to introduce a new tool for faculty to monitor student engagement in our online courses.  Meet the “Early Warning System” (EWS).

EWS Blackboard IconThe Early Warning System is a Blackboard tool used to monitor student progress in a course and alert faculty to possible performance problems. The tool can also be used to communicate those warnings to students themselves to let them know how their performance is being measured. Notification warnings can be generated based on a set of rules that take into account graded performance, late or missing course work, or the Blackboard course access.
