Media Assets

Warpwire allows administrators of Media Libraries and owners of media assets to view data about which users have watched or listened to a particular asset, and to track engagement visually. This feature is available for video and audio files.

This information makes it easy for instructors and administrators to track engagement on a user by user basis. You can see which students are viewing the content you’ve uploaded, and whether they’re watching all the way through, or if they stop viewing partway through. You can also choose the date range for the report, which makes it easy to see who’s viewed an asset within a certain time period (e.g. during the open period for an assignment).

To see this information, navigate to the Media options for any media file. Just click the Media options button 3-dots icon, then click "Analytics."

Engagement Analytics

At the top of the Analytics page you'll see an engagement graph for the video. This shows, out of all the users who have pressed play, what percent of viewers were watching at any given time. This allows you to see the most and least popular parts of your video for the entire audience.

Analytics by User

Below the engagement graph is an automatically aggregated list of all users who have access to the file. For each user, you’ll see associated information about the percent of the asset they’ve viewed, as well as a detailed bar showing which segments of the asset they’ve viewed.

The information is displayed for a given date range, which you can customize. Simply select the start and end dates, and the data will update accordingly.

You can sort the list by user, or by percent viewed. This information can also be downloaded as a CSV file, for use in Microsoft Excel or other third party analytic software. The CSV download includes even more detailed information, with to-the-second timestamps of which segments of the asset each user watched, and timestamps for when they watched.
