Office Mix allows you to track student progress as a form of feedback and accountability. When you upload your mix to the Office Mix site, you will then be able to access the analytics. You can see how many people viewed each slide, the duration they were on the slide, and other important factors.
- [Voiceover] One of my favorite features inside of Office Mix is the Analytics feature. It gives you a ton of great feedback, such as how many students are watching each slide and how long are they watching it for. Right now I'm inside of my Office Mix account, and these are the mixes that I have. Now for the Collaboration Power Point, in order to access Analytics, I simply click the Analytics link, and this will bring up the Analytics page, which I think is very powerful. Let's take a look at what it looks like. So on the left, we have each of our slides. Here's are cover slide, our pre-test, our other slides, down to a question that we put on here, another slide, and then a quiz question at the end.
So it tells us how many people have watched it. In other words, we had three visitors and three views of that slide. The average time spent, which here, is seven seconds, and then the slide duration, which is seven seconds. So that means that all three people watched the entire slide. If you assign it to a large number of people, you'll start to see this number tailing off. In other words, people will start watching it, but won't end up finishing it. So up here you may, say, have 100 people who viewed the first slide, and it's 100, 100, and it starts to drop off until you got about 50 that have watched the final slide.
Well that's good feedback. It tells you that not everybody is watching it to the end. You may also see situations in which a slide has more views that it does visitors. This likely means that people went back to that slide and watched it again. This can tell you, as a teacher, that maybe it's confusing or maybe it's just interesting. Now at the top, we have the ability to filter our analytics by slides, by visitors, and by exercises. Right now, I'm in by slide, and for here, it's showing me all my slides and the analytics after it.
If I want, I could click on by visotors, and this will tell me who visited it. So in other words, Aaron Quigley, Oliver Schenkten, Ronald Crowley have watched it, and I can see that they've all completed it, how many of the quizzes and polls they've got, the percentage they got correct, and so on. So this gives us a plethora of information about the visitors we had to our site and how much they watched. Now remember that the ability to separate this by visitors is dependent on your settings when you upload the mix. If you upload it to a public setting, or even an unlisted, and people don't have to sign in, then you will not be able to see the individuals who watched it, but that's up to you.
Maybe that's not something you even want to see. At the top, we can also click on by exercises, and it will show us the different exercises at the top. In other words, which form of communication do humans spend the most time doing, and it gives each person's answer. Which skill would you most like to improve at? You can see here that one person didn't answer it and the others put Speaking. So you can separate this by exercise as well. I suggest playing around with this Analytics page. It gives you a ton of information that can be very helpful to you and your class.
