Where can I access learning data?

Many learning tools provide direct access to data. Authorization to access that data is based on a person’s role in a course. Faculty members and their teaching teams can access data from their courses in order to improve their courses or their teaching, reflect on their prior course offerings, and generally speaking, for quality assurance purposes. Faculty can access this data directly within learning tools. For example:

Data can also be accessed via the Canvas API (Application Programming Interface) by anyone using Canvas, including students. Access to data is limited to a person’s role in a course. For example, a student can only access published course content and their contributions to the course. Check out our guide to accessing and working with the Canvas API.
