Analytics - seeing time of day trends in student activity


Similar to the requests for Canvas Analytics to be able to show the amount of time students spend on activities, it would be helpful to know the trends in the time of day that students engage. For example evenings, lunchtimes. Also the distinction between weekdays and weekends.

Thank you.

Why is this important - isn't the student allowed to have some privacy? 🙂

We are also interested in viewing aggregated trends in Canvas usage by time of day. If we have a better idea of when our students are actually using Canvas, we can better target remote support availability during high-traffic periods.

Would'nt need to see on individual student basis, is more about the overall trends in what students are doing. It would help us in planning availability and flexible options to meet students needs.
