Numbers update

Posted in Evaluation, MIT OpenCourseWare, OpenCourseWare, web metrics by scarsonmsm on December 8, 2009

I reported earlier this year that OCW had surpassed three billion hits (or files delivered from our servers) since we started the program.  This is sort of a raw volume take on our traffic.  I’m happy and astounded to report that we’ve now passed four billion hits.  It took 5 1/2 years to generate three billion and nine months to generate the next billion. Astounding.

Here are more numbers as of end of November:

  • Hits: 4,056,299,399
  • Total visits to the OCW site: 58,203,827
  • Total visits to OCW content on our site and translator sites:  88,511,310
  • Total page views: 453,183,410 (does not include PDF access)
  • Zip files downloaded: 10,570,129
  • iTunes U downloads of video/audio files: 4,588,808
  • YouTube views: 7,416,403

There is smoke coming out of the odometer…
