See which students have viewed a particular page or activity and when

Idea created by Beth Young on Apr 17, 2015
    Open for Voting
    I would like to see who has viewed any particular page or activity and when it was viewed.


    I can find some of this information by going to every student and looking through their page views, but I want to be able to quickly see who has/hasn't seen a particular page or activity, i.e., if I post an information page, I'd like to be able to access a report about view of that page. That way I can easily remind those who are overlooking something important.


    Also, the time of most recent access per student is not enough. I often need to know when a student first accessed the information. i.e., after the assignment was due? 15 mins before the assignment was due?
