Content analytics

Tags: Skills

Content analytics gives you an in-depth view into the video courses, labs, projects, and interactive courses your team has taken. You also get a glimpse into individualized usage for each active member of your team. Through usage data and completion rates, you can spot where your team has engaged with content and what content sees the most use.

Content analytics includes two views:

  • The default view is the Content dashboard.
  • When you click a particular piece of content, you'll see its Detail dashboard.

Content dashboard

The Content dashboard allows insight into top-level content analytics data.

  1. The Overview shows you the following data:
  2. Popular content among users shows you how many users are engaging with the most popular content. Popularity is determined by the number of active users.
  3. You can customize both the web and CSV reports with the Date range filter.
  4. You can customize both the web and CSV reports with the Teams filter. To view unassigned users, make sure all teams are deselected.
  5. You can download a CSV report of your content analytics data, discussed below.
  6. You can filter the Content table by entering a keyword or phrase.
  7. The Content table shows you all content viewed, according to the filters you've set. Clicking a specific piece of content opens its Detail dashboard, discussed below. You can click the Content type label to filter by the content types used by your users. You can click any of the other labels to sort by that field, and click again to toggle between ascending and descending. The data fields include:

Detail dashboard

The Detail dashboard provides deeper insight into the selected piece of content. To get to it, click any piece of content in the Content table of the Content dashboard.

Ideas for using analytics data

  • The Overview gives you a detailed analysis of usage for a piece of content. Particularly valuable are the average view time per user and the average completion percentage. With these two data points, you can spot trends and track improvements within your team.
  • Report downloads can be customized by date range and by user or team. By default, the report download pulls data from the last 30 days and for all users. We recommend creating a cadence for pulling reports (monthly, quarterly, etc.) so you can more easily track and manage your team's engagement and progress.
  • The Detail dashboard is a great way to find strengths within your team. You can sort by completion percentages and build internal pairing sessions between those who have completed the content and those that haven't. If you have a big project coming down the pipeline, you can use these pairings to help your teams work together and skill up on the content needed to drive success.
