How do I use the Global Activity Stream as an instructor?

The Global Activity Stream shows you important recent activities from all of your courses including announcements, discussions, assignments, and conversations. This stream is similar to the Course Activity Stream for an individual course.

The following activities will cause notifications for each course to appear in the Global Activity Stream:

  • New Announcements
  • Replies to Announcements
  • New Discussions
  • New Discussion Posts
  • New Assignments
  • Assignments, Quizzes, or Discussions Changed from Ungraded to Graded
  • Due Date Changes to Assignments, Quizzes, and Discussions
  • New Graded Assignments
  • New Peer Review Assignments
  • New Conversation Messages

 

Notes:

  • Notifications in the Global Activity Stream will not appear for activity in Files, Collaborations, Grades, Pages, or Conferences; ungraded quizzes and surveys; or edits to Discussions.
  • Edits to Quizzes and Assignments will only appear in the Global Activity Stream when the Notify users that this content has changed button has been selected in a course.
