Learning Analytics

Learning analytics is the ongoing process of collecting, analyzing, and using data to understand how well students are learning and what approach results in optimal outcomes.

It examines how learners interact with technology to develop deep insights into what works well and what doesn’t, so that education can be continually refined, personalised, and made more effective. This creates a positive feedback loop, where any improvements are fed back into the curriculum to make it even better.

This has been a years-long dream in education, but it is only recently that technology has caught up with this vision, in a way that makes sense and changes things for students.
