EPIC usage statistics

Usage statistics for each of the resources included in the Ministry of Education funded subscriptions are collated monthly by EPIC and reported on regularly to the Ministry of Education.

EPIC usage statistics are not available to an individual school level. This is because EPIC vendors are only required to provide usage statistics to subscriber level. The subscriber in this case is the Ministry of Education.

The EPIC vendors provide a wealth of training and marketing resources freely available from their websites.

You can also contact EPIC vendors for additional training and marketing resources, assistance and guidance.
