As an instructor for an eCourse, you can access those eCourses that have been submitted by going to your Instructor/Author tab. If designated as an Instructor of an eCourse, additional Course Overview and Participants icons are available.
Note: An Instructor is also able to create and edit course content and assessments. See "Authoring an eCourse" for additional details.
After selecting that tab you will see the option to view your standard courses as well as your eCourses. By selecting an eCourse, you can view general course information and participant details. In the screen shot above, the list of Active Participants is accessed by clicking on the globe icon drop-down list. From this location, instructors can also access participants who are Pending Review, all Credit Earned and Credit Denied. Lists can be sorted by Attendee, Schooland Enrollment Date.
After selecting an attendee from the list, you will see the course overview for that attendee. Under the Attendee Information heading, you will see the attendee's name, attendee's school, graded assessment score, enrollment date and course attempts. It will also notify you of the required passing score for a graded assessment that is required for course credit.
Once a participant has requested credit after completing the eCourse, the Assessments tab will be available to view all graded assessments for this eCourse. By using the drop-down list and selecting an assessment, you can view the attendee's answers and the correct answers. Only "required" assessments will appear in the list. In addition, any files uploaded by course participants will be available for viewing or downloading by the eCourse Author by clicking on the links at the bottom of the screen. After reviewing an assessment you can choose to return the assessment to the attendee by selecting Redo Assessment at the top right. The screen will prompt you to enter notes for the participant to view by clicking on the View Notes link in the upper right corner of the tool bar. The attendee can then resubmit answers for review. In this case, you are allowing the participant to retake the quiz or test or to resubmit necessary files in order to earn course credit.
The Time Details tab will allow you to view when each assessment and topic was viewed by the attendee. The default view will show the total time spent viewing the eCourse. However, you can view the times for each element by selecting that element in the Select Session drop-down list.
You can also leave notes by selecting the View Notes button on the right side of the top tool bar. This option will open up the notes section and allow you to enter any notes you wish the attendee to view.
If threaded discussion is reviewed during the assessment process, then the instructor can review and individual participant's discussion posts before granting credit. By clicking on the Staff Discussion tab, the posts for the selected participant will appear. If a requirement for the course includes posting to the online discussion a certain number of times, then the instructor can count and review those postings here.
When all sections of the eCourse have been reviewed, you can then choose to Grant Credit for the eCourse, Deny Credit or Return to Attendee. In each instance, the attendee will receive an email alerting them to the status of their eCourse.
