Module reports – wrong day of the week display

We have identified an issue when running ‘Overall Summary of User Activity’¬†module/organisation reports where the day of the week will display statistics for the previous day e.g. statistics taken for 05/12/2011 (Monday) will display as if they were recorded on a Sunday. Please note, this issue only relates the day display, the date an activity was recorded is not affected.

Blackboard are aware of this and have informed us that the issue will be resolved in a future release.

This is separate to the item statistics issue reported on the 25/11/2011.

Comments are welcome, however if you need help or advice please contact the ISS helpdesk on tel (0113) 343 3333, or helpdesk@leeds.ac.uk.

Module Statistics

Instructors: Are you using Module access statistics to monitor participation? Be aware that due to the backup management process of the VLE system, only the last month of statistics can now guaranteed to exist on the live VLE system.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, however to put this is context: the module statistics now account for almost half as much of the data space on the system as all of the University’s module content. Cumulatively, this places a constraint on the time window available to perform full backups of important data such as learning materials. We are continuing to liaise with our partners in ISS, and the vendor, on a more suitable solution in the medium term.

Module statistics are available from the Instructor’s Control Panel. See the guide on our help site for more information.
