Ready to take your coaching and mentoring game to the next level? Portflow has just rolled out an exciting new feature – the Coaching Dashboard – designed to give you real-time insights into the learning activities of your students. Get ready to evolve your coaching approach with this feature, which not only simplifies monitoring but also enhances your ability to offer proactive support and adequate scaffolding.

Understanding your students’ learning experiences as they unfold is key to delivering timely and effective coaching. The Coaching Dashboard is here to address this need, providing coaches, mentors, and teachers with the ability to gain live insights into the portfolio activities of student groups. No more need to sift through individual portfolios – Portflow makes monitoring the capturing and processing of learning experiences a breeze.

What is the Coaching Dashboard and How Does it Work?

Portflow’s Coaching Dashboard is seamlessly integrated into your LMS, accessible with just a click from the course-level navigation. As coaches, mentors, and teachers navigate to Portflow, they are automatically directed to the new dashboard. This user-friendly interface presents an overview of all active students within a course, complete with key activity metrics. Keep track of:

  • Last usage
  • Number of …
    • Created evidences
    • Feedback comments given in other portfolios
    • Created feedback requests
    • Initiated progress reviews

But that’s not all – the dashboard goes a step further by allowing you to sort and view changes (increase/decrease) in any chosen period. Need to dive deeper into a student’s portfolio? Simply click on their name, and you’ll be taken directly to their portfolio (provided you have access). For the portfolios you don’t have access to, requesting permission is just a click away.

Existing overviews offered by your LMS keep being the place where you can maintain monitoring of teacher-led activities, like portfolio assignments, deadlines and summative assessments. The Portflow Coaching Dashboard adds formative insights into the delivery of education to the summative insights that the LMS offers.
