Transcript of Students’ use of online resources: what Moodle Reports & Logs can tell you

Students' use of online resources
What Moodle can tell you
Some of mine:
Which of my resources / activities are well-used?
Who hasn't yet done [ ]?
Students don't seem to be aware of [ ] - are they managing to find [ ]?
What has happened over the past [ ] amount of time?
How are the preparatory readings used?
Which aspects of activity show?
Can students see their own activity?
How can I remind / message students?
What about at a glance, across the board?
How do I signal to students that I expect them to look at [ ]?
Are any students absent from Moodle?
What do students need to know about activity reports?
What are the ethics of all this?
Finding out about
Stuff - files, activities
What happens over time
Be open & transparent
Activity completion
Need to enable it in the course area's Settings first ...
...like so:
Students can see their own checklist.
View at-a-glance checklist via Navigation
It looks like this:
You can export as a spreadsheet.
Then for each Resource or Activity.
Answering particular questions
Find it in Navigation
Filter results
If helpful, message students
Filter search
What are yours?
Activity report
Mira Vogel, m.vogel@ucl.ac.uk
Every Moodle course area contains reports about student engagement with resources and activities. Available to every staff role in that Moodle area, these reports can tell you a great deal about whether, when, and by whom a given resource or activity is being used. Reports can function as feedback from students, enable staff to message students who have not completed tasks, and inform refinements to the course area. ELE will demonstrate how to access these reports and filter their results in different ways. We will introduce some particular scenarios and discuss how to interpret the results.
Find it in Navigation
Shows number of views per resource i.e. not unique students.

(Not much to see, though.)
Not available to students.
To note
Access doesn't mean learning.
Want to look back further? Moodle archive.
Ethics - be clear about who is looking and to what ends.
Next, hands on (15 min)
Open up a Moodle area you administrate.
Think of a question about it.
In another tab open http://prezi.com/z732cx7kyoeu
Use it to answer your question.
All within a course
(Not for now.)
Find it in Navigation
Like Participation Report, but can search by student name rather than role.
To filter by individual student activity, use Logs.
