The LMS Explorer Kit

A No Cost Tool from HelioCampus to Extract LMS Data

As a result of the rapid response to COVID-19, we understand that many institutions have been forced to become fully virtual almost overnight. Without an efficient means of extracting, organizing and presenting LMS data, administrators are left with complex and time-consuming incremental database queries and manual manipulation of data. HelioCampus, in partnership with our clients, developed the free LMS Explorer Kit to allow institutions to extract data from their Learning Management System (LMS), including instructor and student course activity, and create a series of data visualizations using Tableau to help inform action and decision-making around deployment, training, course development and usage. The LMS Explorer Kit includes the code to extract data from Canvas and Blackboard Learn.

Join us for a webinar to learn more about why HelioCampus created the LMS Explorer Kit, what you can do with it, which Tableau dashboards are included, and more.
