As an admin, you can view information about a course in your account.

Open Admin Tools

Open Admin Tools

In Account Navigation, click the Admin Tools link.

Open Logging

Open Logging

Click the Logging tab.

Select Log Type

Select Log Type

From the log type drop-down menu, select the Course Activity option.

Search by Course Name or Course ID

Search by Course Name or Course ID

Search by course ID or course name [1]. You can locate your course id number at the end of your course URL (i.e. canvas.instructure.com/courses/XXXXXX).

Once you start to type the course information, Canvas will generate a drop-down list of matching Canvas courses. Results are based on valid field entries, so if no results appear (especially if searching by name), confirm the information and try again.

You can also enter a date range in the date fields [2]. Dates are not required, but adding dates will narrow your results.

Find Course Activity

Find Course Activity

Once you have entered your course information, click the Find button.

Canvas will display any applicable results for the field(s) you selected:

  • The Date of the activity
  • The Time of the activity
  • The User who performed the activity
  • The Type of activity (concluded, unconcluded, published, deleted, restored, updated, created, copied to, or copied from)
  • The Source of the activity (manual or via API)
  • The Event Details of the activity type (click View Details link)
