How to Participate in Learning Analytics Data Collection Page Our Committment to Privacy

Because the analysis needed to develop Moodle learning analytics requires the collection of detailed data from many institutions, extensive measures are in place to ensure the privacy and anonymity of participants. Those measures are described in detail here.

URL Copy your Moodle Site

Important: The de-identification process must be run on a copy of your Moodle site, because the Anonymise plugin destroys data. Follow these directions from the Moodle documentation, or contact your Moodle Partner for additional assistance.

URL Import Final Grades if necessary (Tool in progress)

If your institution uses the course final grade to represent successful completion of the course, is the final course grade in Moodle accurate? If not, please use this tool (when it becomes available) to import accurate final grades via a csv file into the copy of your Moodle site.

URL Install Anonymise Local Plugin on Site Copy

Install this plugin on your site copy.

Do not install this plugin on your production Moodle server!

(See MDLSITE-4902 for more information.)

Page Extract and Upload your Site Data

Follow these instructions to anonymise and extract your site data and upload a compressed file to the Moodle file server.

Note: These instructions assume that you are able to access the command line interface (CLI) of the Moodle server where your site copy is hosted. For more assistance, please contact your Moodle Partner. You may also post questions in the forum in this section.
