Content statistics display the number of users who visited course content, as well as the average time users spent viewing content.  The instructor can view overall course content statistics and specific statistics for individual topics.

NOTES: (a) A user who visits multiple times is only counted once. (b) The total number of users counted in statistics does not include users who have permission to Manage Content (e.g., Instructors, TAs). (c) Calculated time users spent viewing overall content or individual topics does not include user session timeouts –nor– the users currently visiting content topics as you view statistic details.

To see what Modules and Topics your students have (or have not) been viewing:

1. Go to [Content].

2. Click [Table of Contents] in the left sidebar navigation.

3. Click [Related Tools] and select [View Reports].
