Tracking Community of Practice Content on the Public Website

In April 2009, Ben MacNeill, eXtension User Interface Designer, developed a way to access Community of Practice (CoP) content information using Google Analytics (GA). In short, Ben found a way to add top-level CoP categories to the urls for pages in the public website, so that they can be searched in GA.

CoPs are now able to access their content using Google Analytics . In fact, GA can be set-up to send you a report on your data on a regular basis. Ben has done three 30-minute professional development sessions on how to access CoP content information using GA. CoPs may want to check them out.
