Embracing the Challenge: A Phased Approach to Learning Analytics

On Demand
Session Type: Virtual
Delivery Format: On-Demand
Higher education has become immersed in learning analytics, and Loyola Chicago is embracing the challenge. We will describe a three-phased approach to assist faculty and administrators with interpreting course data to improve student engagement and learning outcomes, which includes building an enterprise data warehouse, joining data from different systems, and creating dynamic reports. We will also emphasize cross-functional collaboration and discuss data ownership and access control.

Outcomes: Ascertain the necessary technical components for a sustainable learning analytics initiative * Identify the primary, secondary, and even tertiary stakeholders of learning data * Recognize the challenges of data ownership and access control
