Participation Map

Features

Graphs

In this example the first post of every forum is designated a "Group Post" (can be changed in the settings) and all group participants initially reply to that post to create a group discussion area (the Participation Forum methodology).
Participation Map uses bezier curves and a unique color for each student to create a neat and clear representation of complex discussion interactions.

Forums

See the entire list of forums for the current course, showing the number of topics and posts for each.

Customize how the graphs look to every detail, from the font to the shape of elements.

Admin menu

The Participation Map link will appear in the admin menu and will show up only for instructors and administrators.
