Learning Analytics: Instructor Perspectives on Course-Level Canvas Analytics

10-11am, Union South (TITU)

Are you wondering what data you can see about your students in Canvas? Do you know where to view course-level analytics in Canvas? Have you found Canvas Context Cards where you can view a snapshot of a student’s recent activity? Are you wondering how you can use analytics in Canvas?

Join us for a discussion with three instructors as they share ideas and perspectives about using Canvas Analytics to learn more about their students and their courses.

This includes the following:

  • Amanda Margolis from the School of Pharmacy uses Canvas Analytics to assess grading consistency from a grading rubric across multiple evaluators to grade a significant writing assignment.
  • Mark Millard from Engineering Professional Development teaches a fully online course and uses multiple views to evaluate student engagement and activities across the course.
  • Catherine Arnott Smith from the iSchool teaches both face-to-face “flipped” and fully online courses, and uses Canvas Analytics to review student activity and engagement in both kinds of courses.
