On mobile web we sort of have a table of contents, in the form of the collapsed section headings. However there are two potential shortcomings of this approach:
- You have to scroll (sometimes quite a lot) in order to get to it, because it's below the first section
- Once you start exploring a section it's difficult to get back to it
In order to better understand the priority of potential work in this area we would like to understand usage of table of contents on mobile devices via the Wikipedia Android and iOS apps.
- What percentage of people use the table of contents per session?
- What percentage of people use the table of contents per page?
- When the table of contents is used, how many times do people interact with it per page?
- Do we know anything about the position on the page from which people initially open the table of contents (e.g. from the top of the page, scrolled down a bit)
