Learning Analytics Explained (Paperback) (Niall Sclater)
about this item
The increasing use of educational technology is enabling the collection of massive amounts of data from a wide variety of sources about students and their online activities. Introduction to Learning Analytics draws from the fields of data mining, predictive modelling and business intelligence to illustrate how this data can enable educational institutions to identify at-risk students, alert faculty, and facilitate early interventions; provide learners with better indicators of their academic progress; adapt learning to the needs of individuals; and integrate knowledge of student performance with other aspects of institutional business such as recruitment, financial planning and fundraising.
