  • 7. Define
    • Bounce : Any visit, during which the user views only one page and then “exits” the portal
    • Non project countries : 140 countries that generated visits to Organic.Edunet Portal but was not part of the consortium
    • Project countries : The ten (10) EU countries that participated in the Organic.Edunet project
  • 8. Statistics
    • Portal-level statistics
      • Visits per day, Page Views per day, Unique visitors per day & Bounces per day
    • User-level statistics
      • Average time on portal, average time on page

  • 18. Conclusions
    • Project countries generated higher traffic to the portal as expected
      • Greece, Estonia, Hungary mainly
    • Bounces were high in both cases
      • More users coming, more of them leaving
    • Simple analytics can help in tracking usage of learning portals
      • More in-depth analysis maybe needed
  • 19. Future
    • Look at the content accessed in relation to the countries of the users accessing it
      • Serve as a guide for the addition of content in new languages
    • Examine social metadata provided on the portal for resources in different languages
      • Characteristics of resources that attract more attention from users
  • 20. Future
    • Interesting to focus on usage of the portal in terms of the languages of the content that is published,
    • Outcomes from this study will be used in Organic.Lingua, a project that will deploy translation services on the Organic.Edunet metadata
