The Converge Dashboard
The Converge Dashboard is designed to give the user an engaging, intuitive, and consistent experience, with quick access to courses, messaging, notifications, upcoming assignments and more.
The analytics at the top of the dashboard give a quick snapshot of helpful statistics. Instructors will take note of how many assignments are pending, how many students are enrolled, what needs grading, which is linked to the Needs Grading page, upcoming events, and online users. Students will see total courses, how many assignments were graded today, how many assignments are due today, and upcoming assignments and quizzes.
You can easily navigate to all of Converge's tools using the navigation bar on the left side of the screen that remains present throughout the Converge LMS.
Courses take center stage on the dashboard, where they can be quickly accessed by clicking on the course icon. Each icon also displays how many students are in the course, how many modules have been created, and how many activities have been added.
The small toolbar in the course window allows you to search for a particular course, change the view to display more information about each course, and filter or sort the courses. You can sort by name, period, and even by start and end date, which allows you to see courses that have been completed. By default, only courses that have not yet started and those which are active are currently displayed for the user.
On the right side of the page, you have the option of viewing your Calendar or your Learning Timeline, but you will see the Calendar by default.
Both of the Learning Timeline and Calendar views allow you to see what assignments and activities are coming up and both have links to take you directly to the page for that assignment.
You can switch between the Learning Timeline and Calendar views depending on display preference. To do this, click on the appropriate icon in the top left corner of the Dashboard.
Quick Access Toolbar
In addition to the Calendar or Timeline icon, you will also find several other links at the top right corner of your Dashboard.
These links will help you to quickly access the following tools:
