If Library staff have requested Kortext e-textbooks for your module, you will have been granted access to a powerful analytics dashboard and a wealth of student engagement data relating specifically to those readings. If this is the case, you will have already received an email inviting you to access the Kortext Analytics dashboard for the first time.
If you have received this email, you will be able to access Kortext Analytics from your Kortext Bookshelf. Simply click the button labelled Analytics that appears in the purple column on the left of the screen (boxed in red in the above screenshot), and then Dashboard in the resulting drop-down menu. If you believe that Kortext content has been requested for your module but you either haven't received the invitation email or cannot see the Analytics button in your Bookshelf, please get in touch with the Library and we will grant you access.
Once accessed, you will first see the Analytics Summary page. All pages feature a bar for selecting the Enrolment Period and Report Pages across the top of the dashboard, along with a collapsible Bookmarks list running down the left-hand side and a collapsible Filters list down the right-hand side.
The terminology used to label the Report Pages can be quite opaque. However, the report functionality is actually quite simple:
Kortext Analytics contains a wide range of metrics labelled very succinctly. We advise you consult the Help feature on each Report Page, accessed by clicking the question mark within a black circle (next to the Settings button toward the top right-hand corner of the dashboard, boxed in red in the screenshot above). Although the metrics are named consistently across each report, the metrics actually used in each page will vary so you should read through the Help for every report to get a better understanding of its potential uses.
