Getting Analytics from Canvas Modules

We had a faculty member post modules on the Commons and we are wondering if it's possible to get any analytical data (more so than what is already present on the Admin page)?  Here's some more details from the request: 

"I'm interested in how many actual courses each (or total of all Mods) were actually in, or clones of the Mods I created. Commons shows "downloads", but I know once it is downloaded, the whole course can be duplicated, etc, which wouldn/t be included in that download stat?
Then, how many students accessed, or viewed, or completed the Mods (each Mod had 1 or more "info" pages, a quiz, and an "activity" assignment).
Like I mentioned, at least one canvas course I know of had a multiple class sections combined... So I will also have to take that into account for how many "classes" to count."

Hi there, @msparker ...

I am sorry to see that your question has been sitting here unanswered for almost three years.  I wanted to let you know that last month, I saw a new blog posting from Instructure about Canvas Commons getting some tender loving care (TLC) soon.  You can read more about this at:

Welcoming Feedback: Commons is Back in Action!

You'll also find a link within that posting for a brief survey.  I'd recommend filling out that survey based on your above comments.  Maybe they will be able to implement some of your ideas when they enhance Commons for everyone.  Fingers crossed!
