Too cool for school

The Victorian Board of Studies hit fifth position on the overall Hitwise charts this week as students stampeded the site in a mad dash for their VCE results.

The site rose 150 places up the overall Hitwise rankings in one day as it captured 1.7 per cent of all Australian traffic and 20.7 per cent of all education-related traffic on Monday, according to Hitwise's data for that day.

The entire online education sector jumped from a 4.99 per cent share of all Australian traffic to 8.39 per cent after the release of the VCE results. More than 77 per cent of Australian education-related traffic was to local sites on Monday compared to the November average of 66.96 per cent.

The Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre captured 7.14 per cent of education traffic on Monday, to jump from 208th to 24th place in the overall rankings overnight. On December 12, the VTAC site was fourth in the daily rankings for education sites, behind Monash University and Melbourne University, both of which experienced traffic increases throughout the week despite being knocked off the top spots in the education category.

Hitwise, an internet traffic monitoring and measurement service, delivers daily information on the local internet population's surfing habits.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
