Instructor Dashboard Users and Features

The VitalSource Instructor Dashboard is a learning analytics dashboard designed to help you manage your students' engagement. Using the dashboard, instructors can ensure that students are reading early and often. Our research suggests that students who have first-day access to course materials and interact with content regularly show higher retention rates and have better outcomes.


Instructors use the dashboard for the powerful data it provides, which unlocks insights into student study habits. The dashboard allows for timely intervention with potential at-risk students and can help lead to improved outcomes, as well as inform content decisions.
