  4. 4. We can't get enough! Last week we averaged 1200 logins a day on eCommunity! Peaked at 6800 site views last Wednesday Collaboration spikes around PD events, and we still average around 100 logins each day.
  5. 5. And they're not just logging in! 3000 page views 400 course posts ... on average each day Page views graph Course posts graph
  6. 6. Most popular activities? While most teachers start with links and information, it quickly grows into discussion areas, self-checks, and online assignments. It also make great web glue!
  7. 7. Who is most active? ... last two weeks
  8. 8. Extending the classroom 5% of all this traffic occurs after school hours; and this trend is increasing. That's an exciting direction. This can improve parent awareness of school activity and help create connections between the student home life and their work in the classroom It's not just on a computer either ... think P.O.D.
  9. 9. Promoting your school A place to share school news or achievements. Easily setup RSS news feeds, showcase media, or advertize events. Ties in to Sharepoint. - BRHS averages 2200 views a week!
  10. 10. What teachers are saying ... Thanks for the super day. Best inservice I've had in years! (Hythe Elementary May 2009) There was no pressure in doing this session, very hands on. Thank you! (PRSD PD Day Sept 2009) hey, would I have anything to share if it weren’t for your instruction one-community?? It’s all teamwork. (Penson May 2009)
  11. 11. What teachers are saying ... Thanks for all your work and patience this year (Moodle Year End Survey June 2009) I just wanted to say thanks for last week!! It was nice to have time to work and use your brain. Thanks for all those great ideas. (Harry Balfour Sept 2009) And thanks for your work this year on moodle. I wouldn’t have bothered trying to use it if there hadn’t been someone dedicated to helping us out – an inservice just isn’t that great – they can show it to you, but having you (and Jon) actually come out when we were working on stuff and helping us get going was really the key to getting us to use it. (PWA June 2009)
