  • Hey Jerry,

    The 'other' activity didn't reveal any subgroupings or other particularly interesting activity. We mostly wanted to account for all activity when we were coding the data so we could have an accurate sense of what percentage of time users spent in each category of actions. So 'other' was all activity that we couldn't account for as browsing, reading, annotating (saving, tagging, etc), or direct sharing with other individuals. It ended up being time spent waiting for pages to load, opening files, doing 'housekeeping' tasks (closing browser tabs), or starting/stopping the recording.

    Some users appeared to be pretty efficient--so they did other tasks while pages were loading or never got into a position where there were multiple tabs open. We couldn't say much else about the 'other' activity since it did vary among our users (as did all the other categories). Note: the pie chart is showing activity breakdowns across all users, all sessions, just to provide a high-level sense of which activities were most prevalent.

    Thanks!

  • Brynn and Stuart:

    Thanks for sharing your study findings. I was curious if there was more detail on what made up the 19% other activity that you found in the study? Was it just misc. or were there other subgrouping of activity

    We have a Calit2 group on slideshare. It would be great if you would add your slides to the group. We just started..but hope to use this as a way to share information across our research community.

    Jerry
