[Product Update] Exciting New Enhancements Coming to Courseware

Friday, June 2, 2017 -- Ketsia Hamilton

We are committed to being educators’ most trusted partner in creating successful student outcomes everywhere learning occurs through quality content, simple technology, actionable data, and customer success. For all of us at Edmentum, these commitments go beyond a corporate statement—they are a philosophy that guides our actions every day. As part of our ongoing efforts, Edmentum Courseware is introducing new features designed to enhance the way educators utilize data, support students, and communicate results with various stakeholders. What’s more, all of our upcoming enhancements are driven by your feedback about how you use the program and how to make it even better! Here is a quick sneak peek at what you can expect this fall:

New Educator Home Page

The educator home page will provide a new data visualization dashboard, giving educators instant visibility to student progress toward earning courseware credit. From the dashboard, you can immediately respond to class and individual student needs. You will be able to quickly and easily answer questions like:

  • How many students are working on pace and, specifically, which ones?
  • How much progress are students making on their assignments?
  • What scores did individual students receive on course assessments?
  • What assignments and submitted activities need grading?

Reporting

Reporting enhancements will give you easy access to relevant course data on student progress. This summer, we are launching new reports designed to help streamline daily management of online learning, make accountability reporting even easier, and save you time. These powerful new enhancements will give you even more insight into how students are performing without having to manually sift through data so that more time can be spent working with individual students.

Pacing and Progress Metrics

Time management is one of the biggest keys to success in an online learning environment. To help you and your students make the most of your time, we’ve added progress and pacing data, designed to give you and your students guidance on progress toward course completion. This insight into pacing will be displayed directly from your home page and subsequent reporting pages. Powerful and intuitive data views with unmatched visibility into pacing, progress monitoring, and grades will provide you with a greater understanding of student performance.

Gradebook

To help streamline daily management of your students’ learning, we are really excited to be releasing a brand-new gradebook! The new gradebook will provide educators with automatic and seamless recordkeeping of individual student performance in assigned courses. New grading templates will be automatically generated for each new section of a course, and you can easily change grading weights to meet your district or school guidelines.
