Setting up Completion Tracking in D2L Content


Completion Tracking is a feature that allows students to monitor progress while completing a course. It also allows the instructor to monitor whether students are visiting individual topics. (View the Class Progress guide for more information about using completion tracking to monitor student activity in the Content area.)

For every module or topic, a completion type must be assigned.

To see how completion tracking will appear to students, see the Student View guide for more information.
