Hey, wouldn't Google Analytics work on a presentation? It would be neat for a touch presentation, and could really quantify user interactions.

Hi Karen, we display HTML pages so any analytics tracking code, either from Google, KissMetrics, Segment, Lucky Orange, and the thousands of other tools that do this sort of thing, could be added to a page and it could be used to track how often something was shown, what was clicked (touched), etc. etc. Really no limitations in that regard whatsoever. Just need the expertise to select the tool and insert it.

Has anyone in the community done this? Mat, Ryan, didn't you do something like this at what time?

Karen, yes we have implemented javascipt in the html of our touch screen presentations to work with Google Analytics. We were able to track when users touched specific buttons with onclick events.

So for instance in screenshot below we were able to tell when someone touched one of the 5 main navigation buttons. However, where this feel short was we were not able to track what users were doing interacting within specific widgets. Custom widgets would have to built to do this.
