D2L: Viewing Discussion Statistics


Discussions statistics provide an overview of user activity in discussion topics and forums. These statistics can be used to make decisions over the course period. For instance, it is possible to send email reminders to users who have not been participating or ask overly vocal users to slow down and give others a chance to contribute. When the semester ends, statistics help instructors identify the topics that were most effective and those that were not as effective.
