Has anyone made sense of the new learning outcome tables in Canvas Data?   Release Notes: Canvas Data    I am hoping for a demo or use case profile of how these can be used.

Looking in the Users API documentation, under the section that describes a PageView object, there is a field titled "interaction_seconds" // An approximation of how long the user spent on the page, in seconds https://canvas.instructure.com/doc/api/users.html Two things: 1) From my testing , that field only appears on a few PageView records,… (Show more)

My school organization and administration is REALLY into the concept of aggressive monitoring, or actively looking at at student feedback in real-time and responding to their work in the moment based off of the data collected by moving around the room and seeing student work.   Anyhow, looking to implement this into a blended learning… (Show more)

Is there a way to get usage statistics (number of clicks) on an external tool/app/LTI at the account/sub-account level? I've seen ways to report on navigation menu activity at the course level, but have not figured out how to do this at the account level via API, Canvas Data, or other means. Thanks!

Is there a way to manually update the analytics instead of having to wait for the system to update once a day?

Hi folks...I'm new to this group and I wanted to introduce myself.  My name is Mike Sharkey and I'm an analytics consultant working with Arizona State University.  I lead a data team that's pretty hands-on with Canvas data elements.  Our ecosystem includes:
- Canvas Data tables loaded into AWS Redshift tables
- Canvas Live Events (Caliper) ingested into AWS S3 buckets and loaded into Redshift
- Building many different Tableau dashboards using data from Canvas Data & Live Events

The kind of work my team does includes:
- ETL'ing data into S3/Redshift (both Canvas data as well as other learning tools)
- Lots of SQL on the Canvas and Caliper tables (and joining to SIS data in our warehouse)
- Building Tableau dashboards for Operational users, LMS Admins, Researchers, Advisor/Coaches, and other internal customers

I'm happy to share anything/everything we're doing, and I'm sure I'll have some questions along the way.

I have tried doing one table at a time and using Excel but I wanted something that would automatically import the tables into the MySQL database. I've installed the… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi,   When creating some BI reports yesterday, I imported an unpacked discussion_topic_dim file from the Canvas Data portal using the Canvas CLI tool and it appeared that the format of the file had changed. The file displayed as multiple tables for each discussion topic (see image 1.) and when using this file previously it displayed as one table… (Show more)
