The ANALYTICS tab for a course/section provides information and feedback regarding student engagement and classroom participation. Hover over a metric label for a brief description of the value being shown.
Instructors can view analytics for all classes in a course, for individual classes, and student engagement information about students for the whole course, or students for a single class. These analytics are filtered by engagement, attendance, content views, questions asked, notes taken, and overall participation.
Instructors customize what engagement means to them. They can select preset engagement profiles or customize individual metrics to achieve meaningful engagement scores.
See Engagement and Analytics Metrics Defined for a detailed description of each of the tracked metrics, and how to view and interpret them for both classes and students.
Analytics for LIVE classes - There are some student participation statistics that cannot be applied or are tracked differently for live-streamed classes, because Echo360 has no concept of a "time stamp" of a live-stream. For example, "video views" apply to a processed video, not to a live-stream. If the student views the capture of the class again later, they will get credit for a video view. The graph (shown below) identifies time or location stamps for student activity in the class, but a live-stream doesn't have a trackable "time" until the capture is processed and published as a video. Notes word counts are tracked, as well as questions and responses. Activity participation and Presentation views are counted for any presentation also published to the class.
To access course and student analytics:
- Access the Course you need from the Echo360 Home page to open the Class List.
Alternately, if you enter from the LMS, the Echo360 link in the LMS course may place you directly into the Echo360 course class list.
- Click the Analytics tab.
You can also select to export analytic metrics to a spreadsheet, and/or export select analytics for students to your LMS Gradebook.
Clicking WEIGHTING on the left lets you customize the "importance" of certain aspects of participation, depending on what is most important to you as the instructor. This can help you identify which students are not active in the way you want them to be.
