1. About Open edX Insights.

1.1. What is Open edX Insights?.

Open edX insights is a complementary application to the Open edX platform –Studio, The LMS site, and the eduNEXT management console–that helps provides course team members with data about learner activity, background, and performance throughout the course. Using edX Insights can help you monitor how learners are doing, and validate the choices you made in designing your course. It can also help you re-evaluate choices and inform efforts to improve your course and the experience of your learners.

Putting the data provided by edX Insights to work involves:

  • Evaluating reported data against your expectations and hypotheses.

  • Understanding the context of the course run: the environmental factors and choices that make each run unique.

  • Deciding whether an action is called for.

  • Selecting the action to take, and when.

EdX Insights includes a brief description for each reported value. To see these descriptions, move your cursor over the “i” information icons that appear at the top right of each chart or metric.
