Toolin’ Around: Panopto Analytics

Hope you are having a great week, here is our helpful gem for this edition of “Toolin’ Around”!

Today’s tip is brought to you by Jeff Jarvis, Media Systems Project Manager, ITS – Digital Media Services. Jeff had some great points in the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence’s latest virtual Workshop about Panopto and its many features; one of which is the ability to check analytics and statistics in your videos.

Toolin’ Around Tip: Get data and reports from Panopto videos and folders to reflect upon participant engagement and session statistics.

Benefits? Want to know if someone specific has watched a video? Or where in your recording people tend to stop watching? Get detailed reports on audience engagement and comprehensive insights into viewing behavior for every video on your Panopto portal. Panopto helps you get the most out of your media by providing minute-by-minute analytics for each of your videos.

Toolin’ Around: Attendance Reports

Welcome to another CTLE “Toolin’ Around”!

Today’s tip is brought to you by Kavita Bhambri of Outreach and Recruitment. Thank you for this contribution to the CTLE, Kavita!

What are these posts?

They are brief, easy-to-implement tips involving the tools we use everyday with students to make our teaching lives, well, easier (and possibly even more effective).

Toolin’ Around Tip: Extract data from WebEx attendance reports to reflect upon participant engagement.

Benefits? As instructors, we strive to encourage attendance at and engagement during our WebEx class meetings. Reports show us the who, how, and and for how long. These data points can help us ponder:

  • Are the same students attending every week? Are there struggling students in the class whom I can contact to encourage participation? Do some students view the recordings of meetings instead? How can I find out that information?
  • Do participants exit early? Is it possible to incorporate more active learning content (EX: polling, quizzes, presentations, class conversations, breakout group work)? Should I distribute a survey to find out?
  • Which users leave, return, leave, and return during a single session? Which connection methods are they using? Do they need tech support? NOTE: You can view “Browser” data, as well as similar attendance report data, from the Bb MEETS plugin attendance reports (as shown in the image below) vs. the cpcc.webex.com platform. Kavita’s tutorials are from the website-based platform.

Toolin’ Around Tip: Select from within “Forum Settings” to prohibit students from viewing other threads until they post their own.

Benefits? This simple setting can create big results: more original critical thinking in threads from each student prior to asking them to engage with and reply to one another’s threads! In turn, we as instructors may enjoy reviewing them for evaluation more too.

Welcome to another CTLE “Toolin’ Around”!

They are brief, easy-to-implement tips involving the tools we use everyday with students to make our teaching lives, well, easier (and possibly even more effective).

Toolin’ Around Tip: Help your students get the most out of WebEx class meeting recordings with the “search” function.

Benefits? The streamed recording contains a transcript and search field. Should students miss a session or want to watch again, they can enter a term of interest. For example, if they want to find out if you gave instruction on a certain assignment, they could enter key words related to it. The streamed session also contains a chat synopsis and participant list on the left side of the viewing screen.

Toolin’ Around: WebEx Auto-Record

Welcome to the CTLE’s 1st “Toolin’ Around”!

What are these posts, you ask?

They are brief, easy-to-implement tips involving the tools we use everyday with students to make our teaching lives, well, easier (and possibly even more effective).

Toolin’ Around Tip: Utilize the auto-record setting for WebEx meetings.

Benefits? Instructors can reduce the anxiety of forgetting to click “record” once they start a WebEx class meeting by using the auto-record checkbox option. This allows them to ensure the class meeting is captured for students’ future viewing in the event they were not able to opt in or if they want to re-watch it later.
