As you know, instaGrok allows teachers to keep track of their students’ research activity as well as see and comment on their journals. Well we are finally getting to improving the teacher dashboard!
You can see the new version if you log in as a teacher, and click on “View Class” (click to enlarge image below):
Some of the things to note:
- The bar graph on the left shows the students activity with instaGrok (the time, in minutes, they spent each day) over the past week.
- The “Time Ago” shows the last time a student did research on a given topic. (instaGrok groups related queries into the same topic).
- The Journal button opens the student’s journal on the topic in a popup window (as always, the teacher can leave comments in the journal, as well as print/email it).
