Learning analytics (LA) is a technology for enabling better decision-making by teachers, students, and other educational stakeholders by providing them with timely and actionable information about learning-in-process on an ongoing basis.
As Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) generate a huge amount of learning activity data through its thousands of users, great potential is provided to use this data to understand and optimize the learning experience and outcome.
With Jisc’s learning analytics service going live last summer, we caught up with some of the people who are part of the community of practice shaping the service, to find out how implementation is going and what learning analytics is adding to their university.
