SmartSite activity rises significantly during fall quarter

Use of SmartSite has reached a new record. As of Nov. 1, the system had 1,757 active course sites, or about 600 more than during any previous quarter.

  • The number of concurrent SmartSite users has leveled off at 6,000 to 6,500, although the level of activity more than doubles during the busiest times of the quarter.
