As an instructor, you can view analytics for a video or audio file in your course and see how many users have viewed the video or audio file. Analytics can help you see if a user viewed the entire media file or skipped segments. This feature specifically helps you see if students sufficiently viewed the content in preparation for an assignment or discussion.

When a student embeds a video or audio file, the video or audio file is created as a new copy owned by you. Students cannot edit any details or view analytics for video or audio files they embedded in a course. Regardless of comments, embedded media views are always included in analytics.

Open the Canvas feature area that displays the media you want to view.

To toggle the course, click the Course Filter icon [1] and select the course you want to view [2]. This will display the unique insights for that course.

Note: The Course Filter only appears in media that is shared in multiple courses.

Click the Insights tab.

View Insights

View Insights

The Insights tab shows a graph of all users who have viewed the media at least once; one user viewing the media multiple times does not affect the graph.

The vertical axis shows the total number of viewers [1]. The horizontal axis shows the duration of the media [2], and includes horizontal bars showing how much time all users spent watching the media [3].  

To view analytics for a specific user, click the name or profile picture of the user [4].

View User Analytics

View User Analytics

The horizontal bar shows the exact amount of time the user spent viewing the media [1]. A break in the graph means the media was skipped [2].

To switch back to analytics for all students, click the student's name or profile picture again.
