Workshop description:

Have you ever looked at all the information that Google Analytics provides and thought, "Now what"? You are not alone! A group of campus colleagues formed the WIGG Analytics Group to help you get started. The Analytics Group is building a community of best practices, creating quick-start guides, and providing other documentation to help you leverage your data:  

In a moderated panel discussion, WIGG Analytics Group members will talk about: 

  • the history of the WIGG Analytics community on campus   
  • a high-level overview of how to capture meaningful information from Google Analytics    
  • questions and problems that campus groups have encountered   
  • the future of campus analytics, and how you can help and benefit from this community  
  • any questions you may have about Google Analytics or the WIGG Analytics Group

Do you have any questions for us? Fill out this form in advance of the workshop!
