Course Highlights

This section provides you with highlights of participation and engagement in the course.

‌On the left we can see a radial bar representing how many of the users are participating in the course and on the right provided analytics for levels (quantity) of users participation.

  • Total/Active Videos – Total/Active number of videos in this course

  • Views – Number of times videos were viewed in this course. For more details please refer to How Views are counted.

  • Avg. Completion Rate – Sum of percent watched in each view session divided by number of views (for all the course users that watched all course videos). How well the the course videos perform in terms of dropout.

  • Engagement – Rating for user generated content creation and consumption for the course. For more details please refer to How engagement is measured.

  • Collaboration - Number of comments and replies in the course (for all course videos).

  • Notes - Number of personal notes in the course (by all the course users).

‌‌How many Participated?

‌Hovering the mouse over the bars provides details on the participation category:

  • Total/Active Users: Number of Total/Active users in the course

  • Engaged Users - Percentage of the engaged users. To learn more about which users are considered engaged, please refer to How engagement is measured.

  • Collaborated Users - Percentage of users that wrote at least one comment or a reply.

  • Noted Users - Percentage of users that wrote at least one personal note.

In the above example: 53% of the students collaborated in the course. This indicates active learning!

The engagement in this example course is higher than collaboration. This means that the discussion created by 53% drove many more users to be engaged in the course and had meaningful interactions.

The table can be sorted by each column to quickly find Top performing videos in the course by the selected category. For example the most engaging videos, or videos with highest Average completion rate, etc.
