Get to know your analytics in MyUni

The analytics in MyUni combines activity data from Canvas, students and unit/course from PeopleSoft.

How can Learning Analytics be used?

  • Understand students’ behaviours and adapt to a personalised learning path.
  • Identify students and class engagement patterns online, i.e. are students logging in and accessing items/tools, and if so, when.
  • Clarify access patterns, both timing and duration, for individual students and the class. This can be particularly useful in the context of assessment submission.
  • Identify resource usage patterns i.e. what resources are students finding valuable.

LMS Analytics

The LMS Analytics tool provides two tabs with data.

  •  A list of content in the course and the number of views and participation for each item with sorting and search functionality
  • The data is an aggregation of the student Access Reports and counts the numbers of students who have and have not viewed or participated in each piece of course content
Course Student Report
  • Provides demographic information about the students in a course (displayed as a dashboard of charts) i.e.
    • Other courses they are studying
    • Other programs they are enrolled in
    • Their study load for the semester
    • Their residence status
  • Drill down on a particular chart element by clicking on it, to see a table of the students in that group
