Media Assets

Hotspot Analytics

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. 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 , then click "Settings."

From the Media Info view, as the asset owner or a Media Library admin, you'll be able to click “View Analytics” in the upper-right of the Media options page.

The View Analytics page automatically aggregates all of the users who have access to the file, and lists them. 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.
