Isaak/Sakai Concurrency Graphs: Sampled from 2012

The following graphs track the number of individuals (students, instructs & staff) logged in to Isaak/Sakai. These graphs are snapshots in time and are designed give an insight into the time of day and parts of the term that students use Isaak, Brock University's Sakai-Based LMS.

Concurrency is measured by Sakai's session parameters. With sessions timing out after one hour, or when an individual logs out. The Sakai system does keep an AJAX-style dialogue with all users when they are logged in.
