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

Course participation
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?
For each course space finding out about:
Student behaviours.
Who accesses what.
Over time.
Discuss this with them.
Activity completion
Need to enable it in the course space's Settings first ...
Students can see their own checklist.
View at-a-glance checklist via Settings.
It looks like this:
You can export as a spreadsheet.
Then for each Resource or Activity.
Answering particular questions
Filter results
If helpful, send an email.
Filter search
What are yours?
Activity report
Mira Vogel, Digital Education Advisor, Digital Education, ISD
Every Moodle space contains reports about student engagement with resources and activities. Available to every staff role in that Moodle space, these reports can tell you a great deal about whether, when, and by whom a given resource or activity is being used. Reports can work as 'naturally-occurring' feedback from students, enable staff to message students who have not completed tasks, and inform improvements to the Moodle space. Digital Education will demonstrate how to access these reports and filter their results in different ways. We will introduce some scenarios and discuss how to interpret the results.
Shows simple number of views per resource.

(Not much to see, though.)
Not available to students.
To note
Want to look back further? Moodle archive.
Ethics - discuss with students (StARs?) & colleagues who is looking and to what ends.
Next, hands on (15 min)
Open up a Moodle area you administrate.
Post-its - write down a question.
Stick question on wall (near similar questions if possible).
In another tab open http://prezi.com/z732cx7kyoeu
Use it to answer your question.
Within each course space:
Find it in
Settings > Reports
Like Participation Report,
but can search by name.
Find it in
Settings > Reports
Find it in
Settings > Reports.
Course completion
Set completion
conditions via
Settings Block
Need to enable it in the course space's Settings first ...
Can set resources to view, activities to complete, grade to reach, duration of enrolment, completion of other courses, manual self-completion.
Course Completion Status block gives tutors a course report
Optionally, students can see own report
Good idea
Feed into bigger-picture investigations about student learning.
