Canvas is collecting a lot of data on my course and making it available in a very limited format. How can I download the raw data on my courses to conduct my own analytics?
Brian, as this question is specific to collecting Canvas Data, I've shared it with the Canvas Data Services space.
Brian, I see this question has been sitting out here for awhile with no direct responses thus far. Have you had a chance to investigate the resources in the Canvas Data Services space? You'll find that many Canvas users have been devising strategies for managing the data and are sharing those strategies in the Community. Let us know how it's going!
Brian, right now only Canvas admins have access to Canvas Data - which is the raw data for all courses. So short answer, you can't get access to the raw data unless you are a Canvas Admin or your Canvas admin provides you with the raw data. Yet, as an Instructor, if you are tech savvy I believe you can do some API calls (Canvas LMS REST API Documentation) to get some of this data yourself. Is there something specific for your course that you are wanting information on?
