At a high level, Visitor Sessions are the grouping of individual, continuous Visitor Page Views.

The sessions provides totals, such as the number of unique assets viewed and the total duration that the visitor spent with a PathFactory content track (what we used to call content experiences).

Each Visitor Page View has information on the content viewed as well as the time spent on that content.
