General info on Usage Statistics
The Usage Statistics of a course room provide information on how intensively the available materials and activities are used, in compliance with data protection regulations. Managers can activate the statistics in the course settings. They can then be viewed by all participants of the course room.
The statistics are live and anonymous. Some of the underlying data comes from Moodle itself, while other data is collected and stored anonymously using the plugin "Learning Analytics for Moodle". The collected data does not allow for tracing back to individual users.
Learning Analytics is developed by the Center for Learning and Teaching Services at RWTH Aachen University. The development is open source. You can therefore self-check the algorithms being used.
