This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Resources linked from this page may no longer be available or reliable.
Important:
Oncourse is retired. For details, see About the Oncourse retirement.

As an instructor or site owner, you can determine which events the Site Stats tool records; see ARCHIVED: Using the Site Stats tool. Following is a definition of each event available in the tool for course or project sites. Tools are listed in the order in which they appear in the Site Stats display.

Note: Most entries in the "Overview" section are self-explanatory; however, some that may be unclear are defined here. Also, in portfolio sites, Site Stats also covers tools from the portfolio suite; however, the entries for those tools are self-explanatory, and are therefore not defined here.
