Stay on track with ACE

Analytics for Course Engagement (ACE) is like a ‘fitness tracker’ for your studies – it helps you understand how your academic engagement is tracking compared to your classmates. It gathers data when you use LEARN to do things like review your course materials or take quizzes, and when you watch recorded lectures on Echo360. While ACE does not track your performance or your attendance at lectures, these are still very important!

ACE is a quick and easy way to check if you’re on track with your studies, or if you need to engage more with your course materials, assignments and tools like LEARN.

If ACE notices your engagement has dropped, UC might contact you to see if there’s something we can do to help get your engagement back on track. It’s important that you respond to communication from UC. If UC is concerned about your engagement and can’t get in touch with you, your emergency contact person or other relevant agencies may be contacted.

If you haven’t already, take a look at your ACE dashboard on the LEARN website
