This video is pretty scary. Others may well be different, but I wouldn’t find it motivating to compare myself to the class average for number of logins or social interactions. I am deeply sceptical about whether this would be helpful or useful to a student unless, perhaps, they were doing well and even if they were, is any meaningful information or reinforcement to be found here? A student ‘at risk of failing’ would not rush to read their report, nor find any help if they did.

It is interesting to compare this video to the Blackboard promotional video here
