Understand engagement to improve outcomes and inform content decisions

All stakeholders in the collaborative ecosystem dedicated to student success should have easy access to student engagement data. It’s a critical piece to addressing strategic challenges around student outcomes. That’s why VitalSource developed industry-leading content analytics tools—to provide the insights education leaders need to make real change.

Insights Provided by VitalSource

From our main dashboard, see aggregate data on how long students spend in a study session and how many pages have been read. From there, delve deeper into devices used to study, annotations made per study session, and other key statistics. Pull up data at the student, book, course, or institution level. Smart filters provide the ability to dive deeper into specific cohorts, content, and more.

Our data feeds are based on the IMS Caliper standard and provide near real-time or periodic access to student content interactions. These feeds easily plug into campus-wide analytics platforms to provide stakeholders a more holistic picture of student engagement with their content.
