Abstract This article reports on the progress we have achieved as we continue to pilot new approaches using an eEcosystem that is based on a multi-screen concept to support e-learning. Here we recap our recent progress with the project JAUZI/eBig3 that is a multi-screen e-learning development. The approach effectively integrates the popular technologies of television, Internet, and mobile phones. It is a new way of using technology to support and encourage engagement in the lifelong learning process. Here we present the results of ten course pilots offered in 2013 with the eBig3-learning format as well as the teacher training courses offered by the MII project (Modern Education of Interests) in 2014. The target group of eBig3 courses was general public, but for the MII courses it was teachers. We compared the user behavior data from the various presented courses with the number of learning objects to the number of users. The normalised curves of the user behavior data graph are a valuable source for data analysis to teachers and course developers because they profile effectiveness of course content and delivery approach in respect to target group expections. Our observations about the variance in user behavior distribution between mandatory and optional courses can be used as a potential quality indicator for the success of eLearning courses.
