Accessing Video Analytics

Once you have created media content with Kaltura and published in Moodle, you may wish to view the analytics to get an idea of if and how users are accessing your media.

  1. Visit moodle.lafayette.edu, and navigate to the relevant course page.
  2. From the list of options under your name towards the left side of the screen, click [Media Gallery]. Here, you will see all of the media content available to students within this course (note: you need to add the media to the course using the Kaltura Media Resource).
  3. To view video analytics, select the button for [Channel Actions] and choose [Analytics] from the dropdown menu.
