We're working in collaboration to build a learning analytics service for the sector. There are over 50 universities and colleges signed up to the initial phases of the implementation.
What we are making
1. A basic learning analytics solution
This will include everything you require to track student learning activity so that you can improve retention and attainment. It will include an app for students to allow them to maximise their learning potential by tracking their learning activity.
2. Supporting resources
We are also developing resources with support to help you take up the learning analytics solutions and navigate challenges such as legal and ethical issues.
Follow our progress
- Alpha phase: September 2015 - April 2016
- Beta phase: January - September 2016
- Transition to service: September 2016 - July 2017
- Service delivery: September 2017
Why this matters
Effective use of learning analytics was identified as a priority via a stakeholder consultation process known as co-design.
Universities and colleges use student data to help make informed decisions which can lead to improved student satisfaction, retention and attainment.
Organisations will benefit from tools and exemplars so that they can implement the best solution for their needs and priorities.
There are some existing strong commercial learning analytics tools and the Jisc architecture works with a selection of these to provide a joined up, flexible and scalable solution that is easy to adopt.
How this will help you...
...as a student
...as a member of staff
...as a data manager
...as an IT director
Who we are working with
The learning analytics solution is being developed in collaboration with commercial suppliers and the sector.
There will an opportunity for other commercial suppliers to integrate with the learning analytics solution in the future.
