Learning analytics

Learning analytics involves the collection, analysis and reporting of large datasets relating to learners and their contexts. Current developments are focused on three areas: understanding the scope and uses of learning analytics; integrating analytics into existing courses; and expansion of learning analytics to new areas, particularly MOOCs. A central challenge is to develop analytics that are driven by key questions, rather than just querying data collected from online systems. The relation of learning design to learning analytics is also being considered, so that new teaching methods and curricula are informed by analysis of previous experience. Methods of learning analytics not only examine past interactions but also support future outcomes for students and educators. Other key issues include secure data storage, appropriate levels of access, and providing the necessary infrastructure for storing and querying large data sets
