"Time Spent"

I've been tasked with designing a custom report on students "time spent" on their courses. I'm still very new to Canvas, and the API responsibility is held by someone else so I'm not able to do the requests myself (grrrr) - I have to pass them through him. I've been trying to do some research on this but the sheer volume of data is staggering and I'm not honestly sure where to start. I'm also not working on the latest data, but rather older data so that I can mess around. I've seen references to the "requests" table, but don't see that at all on the list of tables that I've been given access to, so I need to be sure that this is where I should to start.

I'm already aware that this is probably not the best report to begin with, and the results can be skewed by any number of things but that's the request.

Any suggestions or advice is gratefully accepted.
