We offer practical, cost-effective solutions to get your learning analytics projects underway. Providing the digital architecture, tools, expert guidance and technical support you need to reach your goals.
Who is learning analytics for?
Our study goal app allows students to champion and manage their own learning experiences. Providing opportunities for timely conversations with their tutors using real-time data insights. Help your students to better understand their own learning behaviours and achieve the results they want.
Tutors, teaching and support staff
Using descriptive data analysis and aggregated data modelling the traffic light system helps tutors, teachers and support staff to identify at-risk students through early intervention, enhancing your students experience.
Tutors gain a deeper understanding of how students behave and interact with the curriculum through detailed and timely reports. Our learning analytics services will help you to deliver a more personalised learning experience through assessing your learning techniques, virtual learning environment (VLE) and course design.
Higher education institutions
Improve student wellbeing, increase retention and build healthier communications between students and teaching staff through data-informed business decisions. Jisc’s learning analytics solutions will help to improve your institutional performance, financial resilience and boost your institution's reputation.
Our learning analytics service provides the architecture, tools and specialist support to streamline and extract the most value from your data sources. Hosted on a secure server, our learning data hub will be the central storehouse for all your data needs.
We will work with you on selecting and integrating data sources, cleaning, configuring products and interpreting the data to ensure you get the best possible outcomes. Our products are interoperable with other technological solutions, giving you the freedom to develop your learning analytics framework.
What's included in the core learning analytics suite
Ethical guidance and support
We will work with you to get your ethical, legal and security groundwork right. Our learning analytics code of practice guide will help you to plan and implement your analytics work – and the human interactions that result – with the informed consent and cooperation of students.
It will be your guide as you develop transparent institutional policies that set out what you want to achieve, what data you’re collecting, how you’re using it and how students will benefit. Use it to make sure you’ve got the key legal, ethical and logistical issues sorted.
Our learning analytics service employs a cloud-hosted, resilient system that will enable you to engage with analytics with confidence. We’ll work with you to ensure the data you store complies with your own institutional policies, is General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant, and is processed within the European Economic Area. Your data is secured against misuse.
Learning data hub
Our cloud-based storage solution for all your student records data.
Jisc’s learning data hub sits at the heart of our learning analytics solution and supports integration with complementary products and services. Hosted on Amazon Web Service (AWS), secure, resilient servers in the UK and EU providing a cost-effective and convenient solution, while helping you to remain GDPR compliant.
Data explorer dashboard
A dashboard management tool that brings your institution's multiple data sources together. Using the RAG (red/amber/green) traffic light system, which rates student activity at module and course level, you can quickly interpret engagement such as VLE usage, attendance and assessment through easy to understand data visualisations.
Use your dashboard to identify at-risk students with timely interventions and uncover how students are engaging with their learning environment to identify under-performing areas of the curriculum.
Study goal app
An app for students enabling them to access richer information and timely feedback about their learning experiences. The data insights will help them to better understand their academic progress, learning behaviours and level of engagement.
It encourages them to take control and champion their own learning by setting their own goals and benchmarking themselves against their peers.
The study goal app offers an efficient and cost-effective way to monitor attendance in lectures and ensures students feel they are getting a more personalised service to help them achieve more.
