Option to view analytics for items in the Commons

Option to view analytics for items in the Commons

(4)
It would be helpful if the item owner could view how many times a resources has been imported into a course, how many times a resources has been viewed, etc. The rating is helpful, but more detailed analytics would be valuable to those who create content for the commons.

We absolutely need this feature. We would like to use Commons for projects where tracking is essential.

There's another similar idea, they should be combined...

Okay, they're combined. Now we need to get more votes going on this as it would be very helpful.

This idea is one of the lucky ones that was selected to get a little more time for voting as part of our evolution of the feature idea process.   It was selected because of it's vote count and/or comment thread.  

 

*Selection criteria: Most (not all) ideas that received 70+ votes in their initial voting round.

This would be so useful at Bellevue College. In the library, we are now creating library instruction Canvas modules and placing them into the local Canvas Commons for faculty to download into their classes. This enables us to reach students and classes we may not see otherwise. However, unless someone tells us that they have downloaded and used a module, we don't know their usage. We need statistics to tell us the impact of the tools we are creating.

This would be a great feature to have! We have been developing modules to upload into Canvas for our library instruction sessions and it would be UH-mazing to know how often these were downloaded from Commons.

I have recently had several comments and requests from faculty about this.  People need to know how many times their content is being used, how helpful it was, who, etc.  I actually had something on commons and removed it pending this option.  I create content that is important for faculty.

I'm the new coordinator for 4-15ish sections (depending on the semester) of our freshmen survey course, and we're trying to redesign the content to be more engaging and to integrate our university's iPad initiative with Apple...but without being able to see how many times certain links are clicked, I can't make evidence-based change for next semester.  We need this feature ASAP to make our courses the best they can be.

We'd like to see this, too, at UC Berkeley. #ucberkeley

We are deciding to keep all of our training material on Commons or not. Without knowing if anyone else is using it, we may decide to remove it.

Yes, instruction librarians would benefit greatly from this -- we need a way to report how many of our modules are used/not used

Canvas LMS Community‌ any word on if analytics can become a part of modules/content shared out to Canvas Commons?

It would be so helpful to have this feature and not have to reach out to all faculty individually to see if they uploaded a module or not.

Please make this availble!  🙂

I don't understand why there are four votes down for this. What are possible negative outcomes of including this data in the system?
