Learning Analytics for Instructors Widget

You can add a learning analytics widget to your MyWisc page, if you’re an instructor in Canvas. This widget brings together links to learning analytics tools and numerous resources, in one convenient location.

How to add this widget to your MyUW page

Short Version:

  • Go to MyWisc.edu
  • Search for learning analytics in the search box at the top of the page.
    • Note - you will not be able to access this widget if you do not have an instructor role in Canvas.
  • On the Search Results page, click the +Add to home button to add the widget.
  • Drag and drop it into a convenient location (optional).
  • Launch the app by clicking on the widget.

Here's the process with a few screenshots:

  1. Go to the MyWisc.edu page and search for learning analytics in the search box.

  4. Launch full app by clicking on the widget/tile to see the list of tools, resources, KB docs, and events. The links are updated each semester.

    NOTE: the Learner Engagement Analytics Dashboard (LEAD) allows you to switch between terms from the same Tableau workbook url (so each semester is not listed as a separate link, as it was previously). Access LEAD at https://go.wisc.edu/lead.
