Using the Live Feed

Use the Live Feed of an assigned Task to monitor the work students are doing in real-time.

First, you'll need to assign a task to your class. Once they begin work, navigate to the Tasks section of your dashboard and click in to the relevant Task.

Students who have been assigned the Task are displayed on the left-hand side of the page. Here you can see their current status, and their completion rate. Any students encountering an issue will also be highlighted under Problem.

The right hand side of the page shows a real time record of student actions, giving you full details of how students are progressing.
