Analytics for Course Engagement (ACE) is live

The Analytics for Course Engagement (ACE) dashboard, which first-year 100 level students and teaching staff/course administrators can access through LEARN, is now back up and running following a recent system issue.

ACE provides a real-time view of your engagement with academic tools like LEARN and Echo360 – think of it as a ‘fitness tracker’ for your studies! It helps you understand how your academic engagement is going and if you are on track to succeed with your studies.

If you haven’t already, take a look at your ACE dashboard on the LEARN website https://learn.canterbury.ac.nz

If you are concerned about your studies and how you’re settling into UC life there are a number of people and resources on campus that can help you succeed. Make the most of these services, visit https://www.canterbury.ac.nz/support/.
