Dashboards and parent dashboard
Aggregated content blocks
A number of aggregated content blocks, allowing users to add content blocks to their personal dashboards, hierarchies, courses and parent dashboards are now available from the add content block pop-up.
Because of the increasing number of content blocks have changed the way the content blocks are organised. There are now two tabs in the add content block window: 'Create' and 'Aggregated'. 'Create' content blocks have content created by the person setting them up, such as files, images, links and rich content. Under the 'Aggregated' tab you find content blocks that are generated by the system or other user, including activities from the calendar, completed activities, e-mail, and internal messages. This allows for more flexible dashboards and information flow.
Tip: When you have logged in to itslearning, click My dashboard in the left frame. You can now set up your own dashboard and fill it with the content blocks you want.
Course progress content block
A learner's progress report can now be added as a content block to the course dashboard.
ILP and attendance content blocks
New individual learning plan and attendance content blocks are added to the parent dashboard. The ILP content block shows a progress overview of the child's current plans with link to the plans. The attendance content block provides parents with an overview of their child's attendance.
Content block administration
Different schools may have different practices of parent involvement. To allow schools to customise the parent dashboards, it is now possible for administrators to define the positioning of the content blocks for the parent dashboard. The feature is located under the Administration tab >> Edit global settings >> Manage user summary dashboard.
