Time Tracking - Moodle LMS

Reports don't show time spent and/or visits? Enable Time Tracking right now!

Once Time Tracking is enabled, IntelliBoard uses a java script file to ping the user every 30 seconds (frequency). We wait for 60 seconds for proof of engagement (inactivity). Proof of engagement can be a mouse click, mouse movement, or key stroke.

NOTE: Frequency and Inactivity time can be changed as desired.

 

HOW TO ENABLE TIME TRACKING

Site Administration > Plugins > Local Plugins > IntelliBoard > Settings 

  • From Site Administration, click Plugins
  • From Plugins, click Local Plugins
  • From Local Plugins, click IntelliBoard
  • From IntelliBoard, click Settings
  • From Settings, find Time Tracking section
  • Enable time tracking
  • Click Save changes in the bottom of the page

NOTE: IntelliBoard will start tracking from the moment it is turned on.

  • From Site Administration, click Plugins
  • From Plugins, click Local Plugins
  • From Local Plugins, click IntelliBoard
  • From IntelliBoard, click Settings

HOW TO TRACK HTML5 MEDIA

Site Administration > Plugins > Local Plugins > IntelliBoard > Settings 

  • From Site Administration, click Plugins
  • From Plugins, click Local Plugins
  • From Local Plugins, click IntelliBoard
  • From IntelliBoard, click Settings
  • From Settings, find Time Tracking section
  • Enable Track HTML5 Media as well as time tracking
  • Click Save changes in the bottom of the page

If you have embeded videos into your Moodle and using HTML, then this option will allow IntelliBoard to track time that your users spent on video activities. 

NOTE: The video “play” time will override IntelliBoard's way of Time Tracking. Therefore, IntelliBoard will track time on videos regardless of whether or not users were actually still on the page.

NOTE: IntelliBoard will start tracking from the moment it is turned on.

 

HOW TO USE TIME TRACKING FOR LARGE SIZE LMS

If you are a large size LMS and not able to see visits and time spent, please make sure to check your LMS Size Mode.

Settings + Options > Servers > Your Connection > Advanced Settings

  • From your IntelliBoard go to Settings + Options
  • From Settings + Options go to Servers
  • From Servers click your Connection and then edit Connection
  • Go to Advanced Settings and click on Size Mode: Large ( > 5,000 Users)

Under Advanced Settings you will see Size Mode: Large ( > 5,000 Users). If your site is set to "Large Size", this will disable the time spent and visits from view which allows for faster processing speeds.  If you'd like to see the time spent and visit information, you'll need to unclick Large Size Mode.

 

HOW TO USE COMRESS TIME TRACKING

Site Administration > Plugins > Local Plugins > IntelliBoard > Settings 

  • From Site Administration, click Plugins
  • From Plugins, click Local Plugins
  • From Local Plugins, click IntelliBoard
  • From IntelliBoard, click Settings
  • From Settings, find Time Tracking section
  • Compress Time Tracking
  • Click Save changes in the bottom of the page

Compress Time Tracking is an advanced feature that allows you to change how IntelliBoard will write the Time Tracking to the database for Large LMSs.

Save to MoodleData: Time Tracking will be saved to MoodleData files before processing. IntelliBoard will write Time Tracking data to file or redis and transfer data to database with cron job. Cron jobs are defaulted to run every 15 mins but can be changed based on Client's configurations. 

Save to Moodle Cache: Time Tracking will be saved to Moodle Cache before processing. Cache should be configured by client.

Do not use Compress Tracking: IntelliBoard will not be using Compress Time Tracking and will be writing data directly to the database.
