FAQs: Usage

Q. I have added the same resource to two different sections in my list. Will the engagement statistics for this reading be collated as a total or individual per occurrence?

Leganto treats each citation as a unique resource. For example, if the same resource is added to both Week 2 and Week 6, Leganto will collect analytics about each reading separately.

The Leganto Reading List Citations report will detail the quantity and type of interactions individual readings have had including views, likes and comments. The statistics represented in this report will need to be manually collated if a reading appears more than once in a reading list.

Select the title of a list from the Reports menu for the option to view this report. See, Usage statistics.


Q. I have contextual links in my learning modules. When students access readings through the contextual links, is this recorded in the Leganto analytics?

No. Leganto will only record data for interactions within the platform.

However, user activity analytics can be retrieved from Interact2. To access these reports, select Evaluation from the left menu of the Interact2 site and choose from the options.
