Kaltura - Analytics

Kaltura has great analytics to help you better understand how students are watching the media you have published through Kaltura. You can view details about a single video or a summary of all of the Kaltura media added to a specific course. Details include:

• who has watched your media (you can even see if it was on a mobile device or computer!)

• how long they watched your media

• which media is most popular


Viewing Analytics for a Kaltura Video:

1. Go to the Media Gallery. If you don't see the Media Gallery, add it to your Canvas course by going to Settings and selecting Navigation.

Note: When you enable the Media Gallery in your Canvas course, your students will be able to view it as well. However, only media you specifically add or approve visible in the Media Gallery.

2. In the upper right, from the Actions dropdown menu, select Analytics.

3. Filter the analytics based on what you want to see.
