What is it?
Intelligent Agents are a communication tool within CloudDeakin that can send automated emails based on pre-defined criteria (i.e. if a student fails an assessment task, not logged into the unit site for 10 days). These criteria are called release conditions.
There are several pre-defined release conditions, but you can also create new ones depending on your needs. You can run these manually or set them to run on a schedule (e.g. daily, weekly, monthly, or annually).
What to use it for?
Intelligent Agents can be used to engage students effectively while providing various educational values – retention, engagement, motivation and learning. For example, Intelligent Agents can send out e-mails encouraging those who achieved a high mark in an assessment task; e-mail students who have not logged into CloudDeakin to remind them to do so along with sending helpful links and contact information.
