The Dashboard serves as a homepage for Otago Capture. You will be taken directly to the Dashboard if you login via echo360.org.au. If you access Otago Capture via the links within a Blackboard or Moodle paper, you will be taken directly to your paper’s course page.
You can also access the Dashboard from a course page by choosing Dashboard in the top left corner of the page.
The Dashboard includes a list of all the current and active courses in which you are enrolled.
To view those courses which are not active but you still have access to, click the Terms dropdown in the top-right of the window.
In addition to your course list, you will see your personal statistics for each course.
These statistics include:
- New Questions: The number of questions that students or instructors have posted to the course that you have not yet read. **Please note, Q&A can be disabled in the Features and Settings area.
- Students to Watch: The number of students who have not yet viewed the lecture.
- Last and Next Class: Quickly access the last class that occurred, or prepare for the next by uploading your slideshow before lecture.
- Student Engagement: See how the engagement of your students has changed over the semester.
