Understanding learning analytics

Brief Overview:
The analysis of data generated by online processes is an increasingly important tool to help understand how well students are engaging with materials and learning. This section highlights some simple tools that are available in My Studies.


Universities collect large amounts of data about students from their online activities and their engagement with services across the campus. Some of this can be accessed by academic staff, for example, within each module area in My Studies there is a Performance Dashboard and Early Warning System which allows students’ online activity to be tracked and automated alerts to be generated when students fail to engage or complete tasks.
