Mediasite Analytics

Mediasite enables educators to track learner activity and gather data to better understand how their videos are being watched.

Accessing your video analytics

  1. In My Mediasite Dashboard click on the linked title of the presentation you would like the analytics for. The presentation’s properties page will open.
  2. In the right-hand menu, click on the menu point View Analytics
  3. The pop-out ‘Presentation Analytics’ will open.

Understanding the data

Analytics in Mediasite captures a range of data:

  • Total view count
  • Total time spent viewing
  • Viewing trends
    • Trends are represented on the trends graph which provides a heat map and a line graph.
      • Heat map: Hot colours such as reds and oranges on the heat map represent segments of the presentation which have been repeatable watched meaning viewers have re-watched those segments
      • Line graph: The line graph represents viewers or how many people watched a specific part of the presentation
  • Usernames of viewers
  • Who is viewing right now
  • Browsers and operating system

Generally presentations of ten minutes are found to be the best lengths for retaining student interest. More information on using video resources for teaching and learning can be found as part of the JCU Standards for Blended and Online Subject Design
