In the screencast below, I introduce you to the Site Statistics tool and go over some of the ways it can be used to enhance online instruction. Among other things, the tool provides broad metrics that can establish how often students visit courses (and the converse: how little they visit). It can also assist you with student outreach (by indicating who needs help) as well as provide you with documentation for your Professional Activities Report (PAR).
If you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org or 308.432.7089). If you enjoyed this screencast and want to learn more about utilizing screencasts in your teaching, you may have an interest in Jereme Patterson’s workshop: “Enhancing Instruction with Screencasts,” which is forthcoming in February 2016.
