Access logs reports

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) (see also Engagement analytics). 

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