About Intelligent Agents

Intelligent agents monitor a course to find activity that matches criteria that you set. The criteria that the agents search for are:

  • login activity
  • release conditions in BeachBoard.

You can use existing release conditions, or create new ones for your agents. The agent then sends a separate email to the user that created the agent when it finds users matching its criteria.

You can run agents manually or set them to run on a schedule; daily, weekly, monthly, or annually.

Example uses for intelligent agents include:

  • email for users with grades below a certain level
  • check for users that have not logged in within a specific number of days
  • check for users that view a specific content topic

Every time an agent runs, it logs information on its activities and emails it to you.

This email lists the following information:

  • org unit code and name
  • which agent ran
  • time and date the request was submitted
  • time and date the request was finished
  • whether the agent took action
  • any error text

Access the Intelligent Agents tool

  • Click the Intelligent Agents link in the Course Administration widget. (See Homepages and Widgets for more information)
  • Click the Edit Course link and choose Intelligent Agents on the Course Administration page.
