Learning Dashboard in Adobe Presenter

Learn more about Learning Dashboard in Adobe Presenter.

After designing your learning material and quizzes for an online course within Adobe Presenter, you would want to know how this online course will help the learners grasp the content better. Although, the LMS (Learning Management System) provides details about course completion and quiz results, it does not show the learners' progress. To overcome this issue, Adobe Presenter offers a Learning Analytics dashboard that empowers instructors with the ability to detect potential learning problems and to intervene early-improving the chances for learners to meet and even exceed their expectations.

The Learning Dashboard also allows you to check the details about which course screens were most or least visited and on which screens the learners spent the most or least time. It also gives a detailed report of the questions answered correctly by all or by none of the learners. With this data, you will be able to identify the extremely easy and extremely difficult questions that could be eliminated from the quiz.

To explore Adobe Presenter's Learning Dashboard, follow these steps:

  1. Within PowerPoint, access the Adobe Presenter tab of the Ribbon, and click the down-arrow within the Collaboration button (highlighted in red within Figure 1). Within the drop-down menu that appears select the Learning Dashboard option, as shown highlighted in blue within Figure 1.
