Canvas Studio Downloads Tracking


When placing Studio media in courses, instructors can allow download. In addition to the viewing activity tracked in insights, it would be a good feature to also see which students downloaded media.

Value: Students may download media to view or listen to offline. Having data about this activity provides instructors with additional insights on how media is being used.

Hi! My organization absolutely need this feature. The students are used to download videos to watch them offline and we need to know who has done it because videos are mandatory for them to pass the course. Please make this happen!

Please add this feature. Analytics on Studio media including downloads is essential for us to track student usage.
