So Who is #1?

How do you measure #1 when talking about the #1 county using unitedstreaming in Florida? We talked about this a few blabbers ago. Brian Degenhart of our Florida Implementation team sent me some data and I’m struggling with it. Here’s what I have so far:

  • Polk County has the most registered users with 2,816
  • St. Lucie has the next in line at 2,375
  • Collier County has third highest at 1,813

But what about log-ins? Should we look at:

  • Polk County has the most 1+ logins at 2,685
  • St. Lucie has the next in line at 1,840
  • Collier County is third in line with 1+ logins at 1,671


  • Polk County has the most 5+ log in users at 1,096
  • Collier County is second with 1079
  • St. Lucie is third with 5+ log in users at 910


  • Collier County has 476 members logging in at 25+ times
  • St. Lucie has 371 members at 25+ log ins
  • Clay County has 236 members at the 25+ log ins

Now I need to find out the definition of "Active User", but here are some more results.

  • Collier County has the most active users at 1200
  • St. Lucie County has 1,189 active users
  • Polk County has 1,113 active users

But wait, we got more data. Again, I need the definition of "Power User" as well.

  • Collier County has 631 Power Users
  • St. Lucie has 482 Power Users
  • Clay County is third in this category at 329

Now, which data should I use? And what about these smaller districts? If we look at the percentage of teachers and compare to the number of users – well big districts might be the ones tailing after all. Data can be very sticky and easy to manipulate. But that’s okay. I found 23 videos on statistics, including Discovering Math: Statistics and Data Analysis (Grades K-2) on unitedstreaming. Seems to be my math level. Maybe I’ll get some good ideas on how to start.

(Ever notice unitedstreaming is one word, lowercase and italics? We manipulate spellings to when we want to as well.)

    Thanks Danielle for sharing this information. It has given me an idea. The CEO in our district wanted some statistics showing how are using unitedstreaming. I am going to follow your example. Thanks again.

    Hey LaQuita! I mentioned you in a blog post early and never heard from you! Glad to know you’re still around.
    Check with your implementation Rep if you need help getting the reports run. They’ll be glad to help you!
    What was your blog address again?

    That’s about my math level, too. No wonder I like you so much!

    Kudos to Carole Gooden (St. Lucie) and Randi Zwicker (Collier) and of course, Matt Monjan who helped them to get their teachers involved. What’s not to love about unitedstreaming!

  5. Nathan Guteras said:

    Wow we have an active bunch. Did you know my district’s Media Services put together some United Streaming content about U. S. Consistution to share with the all the United Streaming users? It is the first of many districtwide uses of Discovery media to support current events and learning of our students.

    I’M NOT NUMBER ONE???? My O’ My!!! Now my overinflated ego is well…BUSTED out quicker then going all in with pocket 2’s!!!

    I’ve been trying to get the numbers for my school up by encouraging the use of unitedstreaming content whenever I can. Unfortunately for some they are narrowsighted in thinking it’s ONLY video content when it’s SOOO much more!

    My total district (Putnam) has less than 500 total users so unless we use percenatge their is no way we can play with the big guys!

    My small school has approximately 150 Special Ed students with 20 teachers and we were second last month in our county for active logins and third for views. So don’t count us out!

    How do you find out the specific numbers for your school?

  10. Danielle Abernethy said:

    Your system administrator can run reports on specific schools. Depending on their level of admin rights will depend on what type of report they can run. They can call their implementation person to get assistance on this. I called one of mine! 🙂

    I understand that you are the NFL but did you have any figures that included Osceola County? I know we may just be observers and occasional bloggers but I am definitely curious. Am I the only crazy Osceola DEN member who lives, eats, and breathes unitedstreaming?

    Any news about Discovery Atlas and the Chinese dinner?

  13. Michele Futch said:

    Don’t feel bad, Cheryl. Calhoun County has a lot less than you do. So, there is no way we can keep up with Putnam County’s usage.

    I’ve always heard good things come in small packages!

  14. Danielle Abernethy said:

    We’re not officially anything. I finished tallying up comments and guess what? It’s a tie. We’ll post a tie-breaker later.
    Atlas information is coming up soon!
    I only posted the top 3 from the entire state. St. Lucie – even though I tried to steal them from Karen- is not mine. Collier’s not mine either. I do have the data, but again – how should be look at it? The number of registered teachers to the logins? What do you all think should mean #1?

  15. Cheryl Woolwine said:

    I am anxious to see the the tie!Tom I heard about yours, NO I don’t think that is the one! Try again!

  16. Cheryl Woolwine said:

    I think you need to look at the percentage of teachers to logons to compemsate for the size differential. I would be interested to see how the numbers change when you do thi. Maybe NFL will come out on top.

    Any luck with a definition for Advanced User and Power User?
