Hello  @freddy_bustaman .  Have you looked into whether the data available through the access report for an individual student would have the information you need (see How do I view the course access report for an individual user?)?  While this is done one student at a time it should allow the teacher to see what files the student accessed and the last time it was accessed.

Best wishes!

 @freddy_bustaman  - To add to what Eric has stated above, you may want to check Community Genius  @James ' wonderful Canvancement Obtaining and using Access Report data for an entire course .  James gives excellent instructions on how to install the browser plug-in necessary to run it, and better yet, it will show the specific files that a student viewed (and when).  I just ran one in a sample course, and you can see results such as this in a CSV/Excel file:

Hello there,  @freddy_bustaman ...

I have been reviewing older questions here in the Canvas Community, and I stumbled upon your question.  I wanted to check in with you because I noticed that we have not heard back from you since you first posted this question on February 27, 2018.  It looks like both ericwerth and  @kblack  gave you some great feedback here.  Have you had an opportunity to review their responses?  Did either Eric's or Ken's feedback help to answer your question?  Or, are you still looking for some help from the Community with your question about student file access and timestamps?  If you feel that either Eric or Ken has helped to answer your question, please go ahead and mark one of their replies as "Correct".  However, if you are still looking for some help, please come back to this thread to post a message below so that someone from the Community might be able to assist you.  For now, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered" because we've not heard back from you and because there hasn't been any new activity in this topic since February 28, 2018.  However, that won't stop you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic.  I hope that's alright with you, Freddy.  Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
