Using G Suite for Education (Google Apps) or G Suite for Work and need to demonstrate usage and impact?
Statistics 24 provides unique reporting functionality to show what your users have been doing and for how long. For education leaders driving forward with online education it provides an audit for quality monitoring and funding purposes, and for business it enables colleagues and leaders to demonstrate value and control in how Google Apps for Work has been used.
Up to now the only reason not to use Google Apps for Education to deliver online learning was it’s lack of reporting functionality. Statistics 24 solves that in one easy click, providing quality managers, auditors and those responsible for funding with a clear audit trail of what users have been doing in Google Classroom and other G Suite apps, and also for how long. This matters because independent online learning time can now be quantified. For teachers it provides unprecedented insight into what learners have been working on and for how long, no matter where they are or what kit they are using.
If your organisation charges customers for your time, or you just need to keep track of who has been working on documents and for how long, Statistics 24 is the solution.
Statistics 24 works exclusively with G Suite and best with the Chrome browser. The FREE plugin can be installed on Chromebooks and the Chrome browser for Windows and Mac, Microsoft Edge or Firefox. By installing the tiny plugin/extension on all of the machines in your organisation you can ensure that all work is automatically tracked. It can be pushed out to users automatically via the Google Admin Console. It can even be installed on Chromebooks and PC's at home for distance or remote workers, for example. In order to access the reports and data there is a license fee for your organisation.
The plugin provides an instant way for users to check how much time they have spent using Google Apps over the past 7 days, and what times of day they were used by simply clicking the little icon in the corner of their browser.
Users can also use the full reporting site to see in-depth information over much longer periods, graphs and even export data to create their own reports if desired in spreadsheet applications. The same goes for anyone set up as an 'Organisation Reporter', but they can also access reports for anyone and anything within their organisation - not just their own data.
The reporting system is cloud-based so you will always be using the most up-to-date version, with all new functionality being instantly available to you.
The use of Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Classroom, Google Drive, Google Forms, Google Hangouts, Google Meet, Jamboard and Google Drawings is all logged as these are where most work takes place.
As the Statistics 24 user base grows we are committed to expanding its features and adding more functionality. With this in mind we have recently added some weekly reports for organisations that include the following graphs.
Our new safeguarding feature allows your users, e.g. students, to report any online safeguarding concerns they have while they are still online. Examples of potential concerns include:
The reported message of concern will be sent to a designated representative in your organisation (for example, a safeguarding officer) and can include a screenshot of the users current browser window as evidence. The safeguarding button to report a concern can be turned on or off for your organisation.
The Statistics 24 system does not store the reports or screenshots and no personal information is kept from the user submitting the report. The details of the message are immediately sent to the designated contact in a secure email. It is ideal for schools and colleges when students and staff are on-site and/or working at home making increasing use of online learning technologies.
No. There are several reasons why we believe that anonymous reporting
is not a good idea. The main reason is that anonymous reports are open
to abuse and could themselves be used as a form of bullying or targeted
harassment against students or staff. Also, more information is often
needed so a contact - even if their identity is protected by your safeguarding
officer - is required to investigate matters further. It also allows
your organisation to determine whether multiple reports were sent by
a single person, or by multiple people.
The National Crime Agency's CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command) also do not allow anonymous reporting via their site.
Only the person or people you designate in your organisation will have access to the reports. They are not stored on servers accessible by Statistics 24 at all. As soon as a report comes in, the details are packaged up into an email and securely sent to an email address of your choice. We recommend you choose the email address of a safeguarding officer or team.
The reports are sent via secure email to an address of your choice,
usually a safeguarding officer. As long as your email server supports
it, the email is sent securely and encrypted using the TLS protocol.
This ensures that no third party can snoop or tamper with any messages
as they travel from our sending server to your receiving server.
According to a recent Google report, over 90% of email servers support TLS encryption including Google GMail. If your email server does not support TLS then the reports are sent using normal email protocols.
If the user chooses to include a screenshot with their report (especially useful if the issue concerns online chat, email or a video call) then a snapshot of the currently active browser tab is taken. This image, the page title and the URL are sent in the report. No other browser tabs, windows or parts of the devices desktop are captured. The user gets to see a preview of the screenshot before it is sent to ensure it captures what they are concerned with.
Yes. The drop-down list of items a user can choose from can be customised
for each organisation. For example, some schools may want the user to
indicate which year they are currently in. Others may want a list of
reasons why the user is sending the report of concern (e.g. online bullying,
inappropriate behaviour, concern for another student). Or the drop-down
list can be turned off if you don't need it.
You can also choose a custom message to appear once the form has been submitted. The default message says: "Thank you for sending your concern. Someone will deal with it as soon as possible and be in contact if necessary. All details are emailed to your organisation and kept in the strictest confidence. No details are stored or accessible by Statistics 24."
If you would like it to say something else, for example additional contact information or include a timescale for replying to messages, just let us know.
No - not from Statistics 24. Even if you are in a video call with someone and use the safeguard reporting feature to capture a screengrab, the other people in the call will not know.
