This informative 6 minute video is part of Canvas’ Tutorial Video Series. It introduces the viewer to Canvas’ New Analytics fuctionality, providing an orientation of its features. The resource also includes a downloadable video transcript file. There are two main viewing options for New Analytics: Weekly online activity and Course Grade. Weekly online activity shows the average number of page views and course participation and allows you to visually compare an individual student or section to the average.
The Course Grade view shows average grades for all Assignments, Discussions and Quizzes in a course and allows you to compare an individual student or section to the average. Both options allow you to dig deeper into individual student analytics. New Analytics has the facility to message individual or groups of students directly e.g. those who have late submissions and a record of all messages sent between student and instructor using Canvas’ Inbox tool is available visually in New Analytics. Overall this is a clear and comprehensive introduction.
