  • REQUEST FOR A SESSION: Understanding Google Analytics for Newbies; How to Use/Leverage in Higher Ed

    Hello - I am writing to REQUEST a session explaining Google Analytics. Is there anyone out there who would want to offer a session on this topic?? It is a topic many of us who wear many hats in Web Departments in Higher Ed would benefit from. It seems that , more and more, small one-or-two-person-departments in Higher Ed Web Dev are being charged with doing everything: design, code, social media and analytics analysis....it can get very overwhelming...I want funnel cake, but have no idea how to set up a funnel in Analytics. I love soccer, but have not idea what to do with goals in Analytics. Again, I am not offering to host this session, I am asking to see if anyone will be presenting on this topic. It would probably be very useful to many attendees.Thank you for reading, Cass :-)
