Reports - Logs

FLO reports can inform you about student activities during your topic, which can inform future practice. They are one aspect of learning analytics.

The data captured by FLO can be used to inform practice – telling you whether students are engaging with your topic, what is working/not working, and any problems they may be having (eg failed login attempts).  

Logs in FLO are activity reports. A teacher can use the logs report to create different reports that show activity in the topic. The log can be used to see:

  • how often a resource or activity has been accessed (see also Activity report)
  • if an individual student has viewed a resource or activity (see also  Activity report)
  • when a student has participated in an activity (e.g. posted to a forum, attempted a quiz, submitted an assignment) 

Note: Logs cannot reliably show how long a user has been doing an activity or has actually viewed a resource. The logs only show whether the resource was opened.
