How Do I Determine Time Spent on Site

Hello, I am currently working on a Canvas Data project gathering student measures, and one of the measures I need is "Time Spent on Website". As far as we could determine, this data isn't actually available, and it looks like the idea for keeping that data was rejected based on this post from 2015:

Student Activity Report: Student Time Log 

 

Currently, we are using the "requests" data and determining an approximate "time on site" by looking at the time between requests. This is definitely a sub-optimal solution, since the "requests" data in inherently unstable. Has anybody else come up with a better / more reliable solution? Thanks!
