If you have the Session Tracking Add-On, you can find out approximately how much time students have spent in a given course.
Times are estimated based on clicks and should not be used as more than approximations.

Before You Begin

  • Identify the name of the course in which you want to track sessions.
  • Decide how long an interval you want to track between clicks in a session.

Example: 60 minutes


  • On the landing page of your campus, click the name of the course in which you want to track sessions.
  • If you haven’t already done so, add the Session Tracking block to a page in your course. You can do this by selecting it from the Add Block dropdown. Make sure editing is turned on to do this.
Add Block Dropdown in Editing mode
  • Click the Calculate link in the Session Tracking block. The screen will change to let you define the session.

  • Select a session start date, end date, and maximum time between clicks. When you’re ready, click the Continue button. The screen will change so you can select users to track.
  • To see tracking information for all the members of the course, click the Totals for All Members button. Otherwise, click the name of the member you want to track. The screen will change to show the tracking data you selected.

If you selected totals for all users, you can download the results in an Excel spreadsheet. Click the Download in Excel Format to do this.
