We have worked hard with the sector to ensure the learning analytics service has your ethical, legal and security needs covered.
Using the latest techniques to analyse big data opens up new opportunities to improve services. The National Health Service (NHS) uses big data extensively – for example, to monitor flu epidemics and target its clinical response effectively.
What could your organisation’s data about a student’s deteriorating attendance record, or dwindling engagement with the VLE, suggest to you about their mental health or their engagement with their course? Might it help you plan some timely support and practical help?
We have developed a code of practice to help you 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.
