            • Getting Started with Intelligent Agents in D2L

              Using Intelligent Agents to Increase Student Engagement

              In this webinar we will examine the basics of Intelligent Agents. This tool within D2L allows instructors to gain insight into their course. For example, instructors may wish to determine who has or hasn’t submitted an assignment. These agents can also send customizable messages to individual students when they fulfill a particular task in D2L. 

              • An instructor may also choose to set an intelligent agent to let a student know when they have missed a deadline on an assignment. Intelligent Agents can help boost engagement with students and help instructors monitor course activity.  

              πŸ•‘ Session Duration:  1 hour.
