Users of a learning platforms are usually required to log in, that provides a great deal of data. The general question studied here is: how to exploit this data to help the different actors involved? At first let us introduce the platform and the experiments we conducted. Then we use a didactic model to produce a qualitative analysis from the quantitative data collected. A simple exercise classification emerges from the construction of two indicators. It is consistent with the different experiments and relevant to the a priori didactic analysis. That allows us to organize results and perspectives according to the exercise classification and adapted to each role: designer, didactic researcher, and teacher.
