Learning Analytics
In Education

A new guide for how to use data to improve learning.

New technologies, better measures and more data, all related to learning, hold the promise of helping educators increase their students’ success.

The developing field of learning analytics seeks to interpret the increasing amounts of evidence from learners’ experiences. But it’s much more than just “analysing learning data.” Learning analytics is about deeply understanding what learning activities work well, for whom, and when.
