Echo360 Analytics

Echo360 Analytics enable you to:

  • See which students have viewed your recordings,
  • See which of your recordings are getting the most views,
  • See the parts of your recordings that are being viewed most often,
  • Export the analytics as an Excel file for further analysis.
We have only provided a brief guide on the analytics available to you. Learn more about Echo360 analytics from the Echo360 Student Engagement and Course Analytics guides.

Engagement Score

Echo360 uses analytics from its full Active Learning Platform (ALP) features including attendance, notes, Q&A, presentation views etc. to calculate an Engagement Score for each student. This is based on the activity of each student as they 'engage' with each ALP feature.

If you do not use any of the ALP features, the Engagement Score is unlikely to be meaningful however, you can change the weighting of each feature to match your use and their relative importance to 'engagement' with your recordings.

Learn more about the metrics used by Echo360 analytics from the Definition of Analytics Data Metrics guide.

Learn how to configure the engagement score from the Configuring YOUR Engagement Score Preferences guide.
