I have talked previously about what I do but if any of you out there look after websites or work in a uni for a living I thought you may be interested in the scale of online learning in a modern uni.
The graph above show hits per hour for an average day, at 4AM it plummets to nearly 300K hits but never much below that. We gets students logging in from all over the world. In one month alone we had 600k logins with an average stay of over an hour - that's over six hundred thousand hours of contact with the online learning system in one month. My staff took over 10k support calls and emails this year from academic staff alone. We podcast over 700 hrs of lectures a week. It has been a big year - I'm going to enjoy the xmass break - how about you.
