Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Checking a student's forum activity with Search Forums block, part of Moodle 2.8 Essential Training.
- In the last video, we looked at different ways…to track student activity.…Now let's look at how to pull together…all of the student forum posts and replies…throughout your course.…This can be useful if you want to check…a particular student's progress,…you want to respond to a student's question,…or you're working with a student outside of class.…We'll use the Search Forums block to do this.…Remember, if you don't see the Search Forums block,…you can just add it from the Add a Block block,…as we learned back in chapter two.…I'll navigate to that block now.…
It's in the top right corner.…I'll type the word User, a colon,…and a student's last name, like Cruz.…When I click Go,…the search results will list every post and reply…by that student.…Here we have Maria Cruz.…If you want to narrow your search,…you can also specify keywords, a date range,…or a particular forum.…Click the Advanced Search link at the top right.…I'll start with a word that might appear…in a post, like games.…
Here you can see Elaine Chao,…and Abdul Zaman used that word.…
