“I'm going to experts who know about education”

Nick Moore, director of IT services and the University of Gloucestershire helped us to pilot our learning analytics student app (part of our wider learning analytics project) that puts the power in learners’ hands by tracking their learning activity and allowing them to maximise their learning potential.

"I think the great thing about working with Jisc is that, as learning analytics is not a mature subject, it's not something that everyone has an answer to and Jisc is helping the sector explore and put in place solutions that work for the sector.

"So, instead of going to a commercial company and buying a solution, I'm going to experts who know about education and who are trying to develop something that is of benefit to the sector and are interested in a two-way process of learning.

"The university is learning through the process, and I know that the Jisc team are interested in that and take that on board - they are working hard to make this a solution that will work for me.

"As we're a relatively small IT department, there's a lot of experience at Jisc that I can tap into in terms of ways to manage the data and build the system, so it's all a very positive experience."
