Viewing Media Analytics

Analytics Page Overview

You will automatically be taken to the Dashboard view where you can see the following:

  1. Navigation tabs (see below)
  2. Media analytics: displays how many files are in the site, how many have been viewed and how many plays the collection has gotten.
  3. Most Popular Media list: see which media is your course's favorite.
  4. User Engagement and Contribution: simple data that allows you to see how often specific students are engaging with your media as well as who your top contributors are.

Media Tab

Here you are able to view the different titles in your site, who they were uploaded by, how many plays they have had as well as the average for the number of times people did not finish watching the media (Avg. Drop-Off).

Engagement Tab

Here you are able to see how many unique videos were viewed as well as other items that might interest you.

Contribution Tab

This example limits what you might see with a full roster but when used with a real course you will be able to see what types of media have been uploaded by each student.  This is only possible if you have allowed your students to upload media to the Media Gallery.
