Blackboard Classic STAR Report Spring 2010-2011

Drexel professors are utilizing Blackboard Classic in their course sections and this activity spans many academic disciplines. IRT developed a "STAR Report" (recall the Morningstar Report rationale for evaluating mutual funds in a clear, understandable, manner). This STAR Report is based on metrics focused on engagement, content, features, and organization.

Metrics in each section indicate levels of:

    Student log-ins
    Student online time
    Assessment elements
    Discussion topics
    Content files
    Course complexity/design

NOTE: Other professors utilize other systems; this STAR Report focuses on Bb Classic users.
