Once enrolled in a Session, Learners will use this Dashboard to navigate through the course and engage with the features of their Session.
At top left (top center on tablet and mobile views) of the dashboard is the Session info card, which displays the course image, course title, Session name, and a preview of Session members. If the Session has reached its Start Date, the info card will also show the Start Course button. If the Start Date is still to come, the card will display this date (Ex. Course Opens Thursday Feb. 21, 2023).
On this tab, Learners see:
- A progress bar that shows their overall course completion percentage
- A button to resume the course where they’ve left off A preview of the most active questions & answers in the discussion area.
Note: The discussions preview will be hidden when community features are turned off in a Session’s settings.
This tab features an outline of the course’s units and pages. At left of each unit and page is a progress indicator that shows the following statuses:
- Empty circle = not started
- Circle half-filled = in progress
- Circle filled (page), checkmark (unit) = complete
Learners can navigate to any page by selecting it in the outline. Completed units will appear collapsed by default.
At left, Learners will see a menu of all units in the course that contain discussion questions. The main area displays a preview of the four most questions & answers in the Session.
Selecting a unit takes the Learner to a list of the questions in that unit; selecting a question takes them to that question’s answer thread.
As Learners in the Session go through the course, their answers to discussion questions appear in each question’s thread. All members of the Session can view and comment on these answers. Click Add Comment on any answer to compose and share a comment.
Answers and comments are sorted by most to least recent, and each answer is marked with the author’s name and when it was posted.
Learners can edit or hide their own answers by clicking the three-dot menu at bottom right of the answer. Session Leaders can hide any answer or comment thread.
If a Learner or Leader edits their answer after posting, the answer will be marked “Edited.” A Leader’s answers and comments are marked “Leader.”
Session Info Tab
On this tab, Learners can see the names and avatars of the other members of their Session, as well as a welcome message from the Session leader. Learners can also email the Session Leader by clicking the Email Leader button.
At bottom in Session Options, Learners have the option to Leave the Session. Upon leaving, the Learner loses access to the Session’s content, coursework, and discussion.
Note: The discussion and session info tabs will be hidden when community features are turned off in a Session’s settings.
Group Notice & Calendar Widgets
Admins & Session Leaders can post a custom Group Notice that will appear at the top of each Learner’s dashboard until they mark it as read.
Admins & Session Leaders can post Calendar reminders for in-person or virtual meetings with the date, time, and address or meeting link. These will appear at left of the dashboard until the meeting time has passed.
