The following inputs provide data to Credo Insights and may be used as filters or identifying information in Credo Insights.
LTI Integrations within Learning Management Systems
When multimedia is integrated with a Learning Management System via an LTI integration, Credo’s system uses the information provided by the LMS to create a unique user profile for each student. This includes:
- Student Name
- Student Email
- Course information (course name/number, but may also include course section number)
Students do not have to remember a specific username/password, because their LMS login authenticates them into Credo's platform. When students use the multimedia through another course in the LMS, their data is saved under the previously created user profile. For example, if a student accesses multimedia through an FYE course in their first semester, then in an English Course in their second semester, data from both courses is available in Credo Insights under the same student-user profile.
Note: Filters for LMS-integrated Courses were established in March 2018. Before March 2018, the data from courses in your LMS will be displayed under the main course in Credo Insights. This affects both assessment and usage reports.
Direct Link via Credo's platform
If you are sending students directly to Credo's platform via an enrollment link, then all your data will be automatically captured under the Credo course name.
Data that appears under the Course filter could come from the following inputs:
- Students who access multimedia from an enrollment link
- Students who access multimedia from an LTI link, in which case their LMS course name, section, and term will show up under the Course filter.
Term information is configured by Credo staff when each course is created. Credo can specially configure automatic terms by the start and end dates for semesters (quarters, etc.) based on your institutional academic calendar. If you'd like Credo to set that up, please contact Credo Support.
