Student Usage Heat Maps
Faculty can view Usage Heat maps, which illustrate a student's reaction to an lecture capture. A color-coded line indicates what a student's interest in various segments of an lecture capture.
- Most interesting ("hot spots - red")
- Somewhat interesting ("warm spots - yellow")
- Less interesting ("cool spots - blue")
Also, the number of "hot" and "warm" spots are listed just below the color-coded line.
Clicking on the Heat Map Opens the Echo to that Segment
Hovering your mouse cursor over parts of the heat map line, generates a pop-up tip which interprets the color of the segment. In the image below, the cursor is hovering over minute 19, second 0 of the lecture capture.
The EchoCenter determines the "heat quotient" of an Echo segment by analyzing the following:
- The number of views received by a segment.
- The number and intensity of discussions generated by a segment.
- The number of notes generated by a segment.
