Checking course content statistics

Course content statistics can display the total number of users, the number of users who visited course content, and the average time users spent viewing content. You can view overall course content statistics as well as specific statistics for individual modules and topics.

To check course content statistics in the classic Content experience:
  1. On the navbar, click Content.
  2. On the Table of Contents page, from the Related Tools drop-down list, click View Reports.
  3. In the Statistics area, do any of the following:
    • To view all statistics for a module or topic, in the Content tab, click the Available To or Users Visited value for the module or topic.
    • To view statistics for a particular user, in the Users tab, click the user's name.
To check course content statistics in Lessons:
  1. On the navbar, click Content.
  2. On the Content Navigation Tree, from the Lessons - Course options icon Course options drop-down list, click View Reports.
  3. In the Statistics area, do any of the following:
    • To view all statistics for a module or topic, in the Content tab, click the Available To or Users Visited value for the module or topic.
    • To view statistics for a particular user, in the Users tab, click the user's name.
Some things to consider when checking course content statistics:
  • A user who visits multiple times is only counted once.
  • The total number of users counted in statistics does not include any users with the Manage Content permission.
  • Calculated time users spent viewing overall content or individual modules or topics does not include user session timeouts and users currently visiting content, modules, and topics as you view statistic details.
  • Reset Statistics only resets the number of visits to, and the time spent in each content topic that is displayed on the Content Statistics page and in the Class Progress tool.
  • Reset Statistics does not reset the content completion status of any content topic(s) for any user, in the Content tool or in the Class Progress tool.
  • Export Statistics allows you to generate a CSV file containing all of your statistics for viewing and analysis outside of Brightspace Learning Environment.
  • The Available To value on the Content tab displays the number of users (from the class list) that the content is available to. A topic or module is available to a user if the following is true:
    • Current date is within the availability dates of the topic or module
    • Users have met all required release conditions
    • Content topic or module is published/visible
      Note: This value takes into account the following: release conditions, special access (assignments and quizzes), group access (assignments and discussions), availability dates, hidden/visible state, and if the module parent is "available."
