The Role of DAA Education Committee
Our committee has three main goals:
- To inform and educate the marketplace about the field of web analytics,
- To champion the effort to create, train and certify web analytics professionals, and
- To encourage institutions of higher learning to add web analytics to their curricula.
In this effort, the education committee regularly seeks volunteers to actively assist with educational materials that may be available both to academic institutions and general members of the web analytics community. We look forward to working with you.

Current Work of the Education Committee
Our current primary goal is to review and revise the existing content provided by DAA to UBC. Our most urgent priority is to review the content found in Course 1 (Introduction to Web Analytics) and ensure the material:
- Is current in regards to the latest web analytics standards, and
- Prepares students to take the web analytics certification exam.
To achieve these goals, the education committee is seeking volunteers who are comfortable with one or more of the following:
- Researching and revising existing content, including both written and recorded materials
- Developing or assisting with promotional webcasts or video for the DAA
- Revising existing UBC course exercises, or
- Providing case studies to be used by the DAA.
Committee members interested in working on this project will need to sign the following:
- A non-disclosure agreement, and
- An Assignment of Ownership agreement to ensure that the exclusive copyright of these questions is granted to the DAA.
