IntelliboardThe remote, or virtual, education experience has clearly revolutionized how learning materials are delivered to learners. While there are tremendous benefits (which lead to ongoing support), there are also a host of challenges that the greater LMS community continues to try and address.

One of these core challenges remains answering the simple question, “How is my LMS being used by the community I administer?” The answer(s) to this question can provide critical insights related to actual system adoption and usage, heavy load times, most used (and least used) features, and so much more. Truth be told, the data underlying just usage statistics alone are a treasure trove of understanding for any large LMS installation, let alone what users are actually using the LMS for.

The folks over at Intelliboard.net have offered up a solution that, in our eyes, is one of the coolest answers to these questions for the Moodle community. Intelliboard is designed to listen across your entire LMS network, regardless if it is one installation or many, gather the data you’re interested in, and visually report back to you on a single dashboard-like screen.

Back in March of 2014, Joseph installed and tested Intelliboard on an existing site. Over the past year and half, Intelliboard has continue to up its game and include a host of new features that we like. This is all made possible through Moodle’s core webservices. Check out their new product overview below:

While it’s a premium service there is a basic trial level that you can test out on a site to see what data you can get.
Note: Intelliboard is a supporter of Moodlenews.com.
  • The intelliboard.net website has published it’s 3.0 version that includes having 30+ reports available right inside of Moodle. It is really cool to see all the widgets just by clicking on the tabs and scrolling down to see all of the data visualized. You even have several options to export this data quickly.

    It is a really nice addition to the http://www.intelliboard.net website which is also available from right inside of your Moodle.

    I highly recommend trying it. It’s incredible to see so much customizable point-and-click data at your finger tips!

  • Hey everyone, yes, I’m a shameless user [and promoter] but would love to say that Intelliboard.net has partnered with a few large LMS providers so if you want to get their services, it might already be available to you. They also have partnered with Powerschools to create one of the most comprehensive dashboards available for Moodle. They are friendly guys over there and always seem to be helpful even if you have a crazy customized version of Moodle.
