Last month, we were excited to announce a suite of upgrades to the Performance dashboard, including device usage reporting, load time improvements, and of course–Udemy Business insights. We mentioned then that there were still a few items coming, and today, those items are here!
Course engagement historical reporting: We know how important it is for you to understand your learner engagement in context. With only a year's worth of engagement data available, it can be difficult to figure out what's a seasonal trend vs. a real change in performance. You asked many times for us to provide more historical data to help you make sense of your course engagement trends. Good news: it's finally arrived. To help you understand your course performance in context, we're now providing course engagement data as far back as October 2020. If you select the "12+ months" dropdown, you'll be able to see all the available historical performance of your course engagement. So, if your course welcomed learners before October 2020, the data will start there; if your course was published after that point, you'll be able to see all historical data for it.
Engagement data for Practice Test-only courses: Previously, if you had a Practice Test-only course, you were unable to select it within the Course Engagement page, and you couldn't view learner time spent on it over time. Now, we've enabled reporting for these types of courses, so you can see how much time learners are spending on them week over week, month over month, and now year over year.
We hope these improvements continue to help you understand and improve your course performance. We now look ahead toward new insights to enable you to teach more effectively, including visibility into learner engagement with on-site practice activities.
As always, we welcome your thoughts and questions here in the Community.
