    (Webinar) Leveraging Learning Analytics to Support Students with Personalized Feedback

    Time: 11:00am – 12:30pm

We will also provide a demonstration of Canvas Course Analytics and Quiz Statistics, to show how they be used to identify students who might be struggling in the course. Lastly, we will offer suggestions around thoughtful assessment structure that will ensure students receive formative feedback early in the course, to help ensure their success.
