Mahara offers basic statistics by default, but advanced reporting functionnality is not available. By
using a separate tool that integrates well with Mahara, such as the open source Piwik, Mahara
administrators can benefit from a multitude of insightful analytics reports.

This presentation will showcase some examples of such analytics and how they can help:
- Understand user behavior and their interactions with Mahara.
- Increase user engagement by analysing the data and implementing changes.
- monitor over time the availability, speed, and evolution of the Mahara system.
