luiy's curator insight, April 27, 2013 2:33 PM

A bunch of different graphistas have pointed out to me in recent months that there is something funny about Graphs and email. Specifically, about graphs and email analysis. From my work in previous years at security companies, I know that Email Forensics is actually big business. Figuring out who emails whom, about what topics, with what frequency, at what times - is important. Especially when the proverbial sh*t hits the fan and fraud comes to light - like in the Enron case. How do I get insight into email traffic? How do I know what was communicated to who? And how do I get that insight, without spending a true fortune?

So a couple of days ago I came across an article or two that features Gmail Meter. This is of course not one of these powerful enterprise-ready forensics tools, but it is interesting. Written by Romain Vialard, it provides you with a really straightforward way to get all kinds of stats and data about your use of Gmail. It does so using a Google Apps Script, that is available to anyone using Google Docs’ spreadsheet functionality. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at how we can actually use Romain’s output, and generate a neo4j database that will allow us to visually and graph-ically explore the email traffic in our gmail inboxes - without doing doing any coding of course. Because I don’t know how to do that - but I do do spreadsheets, as you know by now.

Excel Liberation.: Google Apps Script "execution time exceeded" woes

"I'm a big fan of Google Apps Script, but I'm really fed up of seeing "Execution time exceeded". Obviously data access times can be unpredictable, and although it can be improved through caching it's never going to be as good as a local Excel Workbook. But once you have the data loaded, how about processing speeds - shouldn't that be comparable ?"

Geek Out Webinar: Using Google App Scripts and Spreadsheets to Analyze Canvas Usage Data

Friday, April 26, 2013 
8 a.m. PDT / 11 a.m. EDT


Martin Hawksey of Jisc CETIS started playing around with discussion usage data in Canvas when he was participating in the Learning Analytics course in Canvas Network. Using Google's cloud scripting service Google Apps Script,  free for Google Apps and Google account users, he could dig deep into the data and start doing some interesting (and valuable) analysis all from the comfort and familiarity of a spreadsheet.

 

Join us for this free 50-minute technical webinar on Friday, April 26th as Martin details his experience using the Canvas APIs and walks through building scripts to get meaningful Canvas data using Google Apps Script and the Canvas APIs.

Martin Hawksey's insight:

If any of you use Canvas by Instructure (or even just Learning Analytics in general) you might want to tune into this webinar I'm giving on next Friday (26th April) at 4pm BST (8am PDT/11amEDT). In Apps Script terms it won't be too advanced (mainly URLfetch and data reshaping) but might give you some ideas for what you can do in your own organisation.
