Like almost all North American schools (and many around the world), we’ve had to switch the way we teach and learn due to the Covid-19 pandemic. That means significant increases in the use of technology, and in demand for support around those technologies. In a series of posts, we will be sharing some visualizations of those changes.
Last week, we shared with you the types of browsers being used to access Quercus. In this post, we are sharing the types of computers (as indicated by their operating systems – Linux, Windows, Mac, etc.).
For these graphs, we grabbed the data over the past month, since we moved to delivering our programs remotely (representing more than 4.5 million sessions). Are you surprised by the data below? I was a little surprised to see the pattern – I thought Chrome and Android based devices would be higher. And again, I love seeing the very tiny minority who are checking their coursework using their PlayStations and their “smart (Tizen OS) TVs” (yes, I had to look that last one up).
Can you guess which type of computer is most popular for accessing Quercus? Scroll down to see the answer. . . . . .
