  3. Monitoring Participation: In the final module, participants will discover how to track learner progress and engagement using module progress, new analytics, and course access reports. This information can be used to identify areas where learners may need additional support and to ensure that all learners are actively participating in the course.

This course is self-paced, allowing participants to complete the modules at their own convenience. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be awarded 3 continuing education contact hours.
