    Abstract

    In order to support students in online learning environments to become more aware of and reflect on their activities we have implemented an Activity Dashboard within the learning environment of an online course. The Activity Dashboard provides feedback, visualised in radar diagrams and bar charts. At the end of the course an evaluation will be run and the different learning groups will be compared with one another. We are also looking into comparing the previous runs where students had no dashboard and hope to see differences in the behaviour of the students that have been supported with the Activity Dashboard.
