How do I enable Impact course reports for instructors in Blackboard Learn Original?

The Impact Course Activity Reports can be made available to instructors within the courses they teach. The report shows in which parts of the course students have been most engaged and allows instructors to identify at-risk students.


  • Make sure you have the latest version of Impact of the Impact Building Block installed.
  • Ensure that you have the Data Synchronization turned on in the Building Block Settings.
