Course Participation Report provides an easy way to monitor general participation in your course and is particularly useful for monitoring activity in Forums. You can see if students have viewed readings or Forums, and if (and the number of times) they have posted in the forum or activity.

A special feature of Course Participation Reports is the ability to send a message to those students who are missing an activity:
