Kaltura Analytics give perspective, not definitive information. Be careful not to use Kaltura Analytics as a sole measurement for an attendance or participation grade; if the analytics do not show a particular student viewing your video in a specific timeframe, that does not mean the student did not try to view it. For example:
- It is possible Kaltura could not collect information about someone's viewership. There have been cases where specific browsers, browser plugins, or Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) have blocked Kaltura Analytics from collecting data.
- If you make a video in Kaltura MediaSpace unlisted, then paste a link to that video in AsULearn or elsewhere, users who view the video through that link will appear in Kaltura Analytics as Unknown.
- If you allow viewers to download your video, then when viewers watch videos they downloaded to their computer/device, data about their viewership will not be sent back to Kaltura Analytics.
