Student Insights

The Student Insights page displays for each individual student a summary of their MyUni activity and that of their peers, which is intended to help them develop self-efficacy and become better self-regulated learners.

Availability: in a select number of courses
Best used: By the student during the semester

The dashboard shows the most viewed content and participation within the course, as well as whether the individual student has viewed or participated with the listed content/resource. The information provided on the Student Insights is collated from data produced by student engagement with MyUni Course content and activities. Displayed are the Course ‘hotspots’ (top items viewed, top participations & top library resources) your peers are engaging with.


How can it be used?

The page can be used by students to:

  • Identify hotspots of online activity in the course
  • Filter to view the hotspots for this week, month or the entire course

  • Track their engagement in the course compared to their peers
  • Rate course content to provide immediate feedback
