TEL Good Practice Guides – Intelligent Agents

We’ve been talking to colleagues at BU who are using digital tools in their teaching and have put together some updated guidance to share their good practice. In this blog, we’re focusing on Intelligent Agents.

Our Good Practice guide to using Intelligent Agents includes a list of things to consider before setting up Intelligent Agents and top tips from us on how to set one up. You can easily create your own Intelligent Agents using the examples provided.


What are Intelligent Agents?

Intelligent Agents can be used to delve into unit analytics and enhance the student experience by providing immediate feedback by email in response to their engagement with your unit.

Agents can be an effective tool as they provide a personalised communication experience for students. Emails are received from your personal email address rather than from ‘Brightspace’ (they are totally separate to notifications, so students don’t need to be signed up to receive them) so students experience how their instructor is engaged with their learning and is helping them to succeed.

If you’re completely new to Intelligent Agents, there’s lots of guidance available on the Brightspace Staff Resources page, including step-by-step guidance on how to set one up.
