ShareStream Debuts Video and Audio Analytics Dashboard

ShareStream, an online video and media management solution for education, has introduced a series of analytics dashboards and reporting application programming interfaces (APIs) designed to help higher education institutions monitor and analyze video and audio usage data. The company made the announcement at the Educause 2015 conference taking place from October 27-30 in Indianapolis, IN.

The dashboards can display analytics data for any level, from an entire university system down to an individual course or student, according to information from the company. Instructors can use the dashboard to monitor student engagement in course media content; librarians can generate usage reports to help them make content-acquisition decisions; IT staff can monitor which devices and operating systems people are using to access media; and campus communications staff can gauge the effectiveness of media delivered to prospective students, alumni or the general public.

Key features of ShareStream's analytics dashboards include:

  • Data visualizations such as time-series graphs, bar graphs and pie charts;
  • Ability for authorized users to customize and interact with data visualizations;
  • REST APIs that let third-party learning analytics platforms query and retrieve data generated from the ShareStream platform in real time; and
  • Data tables that support sorting, filtering or exporting.

The new analytics functionality is available to all ShareStream Video Platform licenses at no additional cost. The company is demonstrating the analytics dashboard at Educause booths 2216/2218 and again at a webinar on Thursday, November 12.
